New York Times bestselling author Hope Edelman discusses her book "The Aftergrief: Finding Your Way Along the Long Arc of Loss", which offers profound advice for reassessing loss and adjusting the stories we tell ourselves about its impact on our identities. Because of the common but false assumption that grief should be time-limited, too many of us believe we’re grieving “wrong” when sadness suddenly resurges sometimes months or even years after a loss. "The AfterGrief" explains that the death of a loved one isn’t something most of us get over, get past, put down, or move beyond. Grief is not an emotion to pass through on the way to “feeling better.” Instead, grief is in constant motion. Get the book here: https://goo.gle/319K0Sl.
