Living When a Loved One Has Died
A book to help you through the pain of loss and a guide to starting your new life.
Grief is a universal emotion, the pain of loss will affect all of us at some stage of our lives, but grief is also the most personal of emotions, you feel as though the pain will last forever and has never been felt by anyone else in this way.
This is a book that will support you, allow you to grieve in your own time and your own way while reassuring you of the normality of the process. Grief is something that people do not get over but are changed by for the rest of their lives. Death only ends a life and not the relationship we had with the loved one who has gone.
Living When A Loved One Has Died will help you understand your grief and guide you through it. Earl Grollman explains what emotions to expect, what pitfalls to avoid and how to work through feelings of loss. It is a book suitable for the pocket or bedside. It will help you through the many stages of grief, and in explaining the emotions and dangers of each stage will allow you to come to terms with what is happening and guide you towards the moment of healing and slowly building a new life.
