Are you experiencing grief?

Grief is a natural response to pain and loss. It tells us what (or who) we have lost was important, and it can motivate us to find a sense of purpose and hope. Left unresolved, however, grief can burden us and hurt our relationships with others. It robs us of our energy, invades our thoughts, and limits our potential.

My new book (“I survived. Now what?”) details five stages to help you find purpose and meaning from the grief and other emotions that hold you back from enjoying life, and it provides you with real-life examples from a diverse group of people. You will learn how to recognize what stage you are in, and more importantly, how to move through the stages in a way that maximizes your potential.

Although the book will give you much more information, here are a few things that are in the book:

  1. Your grief is meaningful. What you are feeling is real, and there is a good (i.e. legitimate) reason why you feel the way you are feeling. Your grief, no matter how painful, has value and purpose. Finding the value and purpose of your grief is one of the first steps for resolving your grief.
  2. Grief will either push you forward or hold you back. Depending on how well you manage your grief, it can either help you or hurt you—personally, in relationships, and in other areas of your life.
  3. Grief, especially over a long period of time, can rob you from the trust you once had. It may be more difficult to trust others, yourself, or God (or a Higher Power), until you can learn to feel safe with your own grief.
  4. Once you learn how to mold your grief (through the five stages listed in my book), your grief can help you accomplish incredible things. It can help you help others in a way you never would have imagined.

 

I hope you find these ideas helpful, and if you would like to learn more, please consider purchasing a copy of I Survived. Now What?

I wish you the greatest of success in your journey of healing!—Jerry
