Grief is a path we can all expect to walk one day, when we lose someone we love, and life suddenly looks different. But how long does grieving take? When can we expect to feel 'normal' again? And should we? In The Aftergrief, acclaimed grief coach and New York Times bestselling author Hope Edelman helps us to understand that loss isn't something to get over, get past, or move beyond, and trying to achieve these will only lead us nowhere. Instead, she draws on her own experiences of early bereavement, as well as interviews with dozens of men and women who have lost someone dear, to answer how, individually, we can learn to live with loss and grief long-term, and accept it as something that becomes a part of us, and shapes our thoughts and our choices, our hopes and our fears. Offering advice for processing loss, regaining balance in its wake and even finding new purpose, while also being prepared that our sorrow can ebb and flow, recede and return, and this doesn't mean that we're 'doing it wrong', The Aftergrief will help us to see that while grieving may be a lifelong process, it needn't be a lifelong struggle.
