Lessons in love and loss

Hello everyone,

If you're going through personal loss, after a bereavement, it can be helpful to read the experience of others (and that includes opinions of professionals).

I spotted an article the other day in the Mail on Sunday's 'You' magazine, by grief therapist, Julia Samuel. (Lessons in love and loss: a grief psychotherapist on living with and learning from the loss of a loved one).

She notes, empathically, that 'Grief doesn’t hit us in tidy phases and stages, nor is it something we forget and move on from. The work involves finding ways of coping with our fear and pain, and adjusting to the ‘new normal’. '

Have a read, and let me know what you think?

Warm wishes
