How many books have been written about loss? How many books have been written about grief? I think most of us have been through at least one loss in our lives and have a somewhat personalized view of how loss affects us. It affects us in ways we may not be aware of, and it may take a while to figure out how to move forward in a healthy and meaningful way.
That's the story of my book, "Wherever You Go, There You Are." In the years since my youngest son died, I've written five different versions of this book. In the end, I knew it was a book I needed to write to help others who are going through similar loss to mine. I've been in touch with dozens of people, most of whom have sent me an e-mail in the last few months expressing their gratitude for the book, and wanting to know how to find it.
The book is not about the loss of my son, but it's about the grief I felt when he died. In this book, I describe what I've learned through years of working with others who have experienced grief. That's what I offer to those who are seeking answers to help them move forward in a healthy way. I hope that you'll read the book, and find your answers within.
Anyone who has experienced grief knows that it's hard to get through each day. At first, you can't imagine how you're going to get through. Eventually, you figure it out, and come to grips with your loss. It's a process. You don't find yourself at the other side of the grief in one day. It takes time to work through the lessons of grief, and a good part of the process is learning how to maintain your well-being when you feel as if you're just not okay.
A major aspect of my book is focusing on healthy ways of moving forward. I've had a long relationship with grief, so I know how it works. I know the stages of grief that others are going through. It's my experience, and my experience is what's in this book. It's not therapy. It's not supposed to be. It's a book to help you work through the grief, get past it, and learn how to 0b46394aab
