When you read this book you may be frightened, alone, sad or in despair at the loss of someone dear to you.
You may not even wish to feel better and believe that the world is unfair. You may feel alone or rejected or abandoned or that your world is spinning fast out of control. What’s worse although you know what’s happened you can’t make sense of it all.
That is exactly how I felt in a terrible phase in my life when I lost some of the closest people to me and the ones that had helped shaped my life. I felt lost and although I had people around, I felt completely alone in charge of a body that seemed to have a mind of its own.
No one will ever replace your loss. But with time, patience and a little awareness things will get better and by knowing what you are going through and why and hearing how others have coped, I believe you’ll find it easier to deal with the pain inside. I know I did and so did my family.
My aim in this book is simple, not to bamboozle you with theories of grief, but to give you a practical insight into what happens at the different stages, what you might feel and experience so you will not feel quite so bewildered and can gain strength from learning what others have felt before. The point is to allow yourself permission. Permissioon to grieve in your own individual way, knowing what happens and why you’re feeling that way. Permission to give yourself the time you need, different from everyone else, to come to terms with your loss.
