Grief is such an odd and personal thing. We all do this differently. Hopefully though, we all make time for it. We lose a lot to live. We must be able to get though the hurt so that we can heal.
What Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (leading thanatologist) tells us is that the 5 stages of grief can occur in any order and that sometimes, we are stuck in more than one of the phases. We must talk about our loss and not just retell horrible scenarios. Others in the field of thanatology tell us to talk to others, to help others who are grieving so that we can help ourselves.
Jose does all of this with exercises, an included journal and other included areas in the book which are ready for your personal notations.
If you are grieving (for any number of reasons), please, get to this book unless, it doesn't resonate for you. In that case, find one that does. It's a loving thing that you can do for yourself in this situation.
