The Dimensions of Grief

(19:25)

Using the analogy of an onion, Doug Manning discusses the layers of grief that are experienced on the way to turning the corner in how you cope with your grief.

“We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, 'Blessed are they that mourn,' and I accept it. I've got nothing that I hadn't bargained for. Of course it is different when the thing happens to oneself, not to others, and in reality, not imagination.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
I realized that it was not that I didn’t want to go on without him. I did. It was just that I didn’t know why I wanted to go on.”
Kay Redfield Jamison, Nothing Was the Same
“How can it be that there is such a colossal gap between what we think we know about grief and mourning and what we actually find out when it comes to us?”
Jim Beaver, Life's That Way: A Memoir
