The Significance of Grief

(8:20)

Doug Manning explains that establishing the personal and social significance of your loss is an important step in the journey of grief.

I am always saddened by the death of a good person. It is from this sadness that a feeling of gratitude emerges. I feel honored to have known them and blessed that their passing serves as a reminder to me that my time on this beautiful earth is limited and that I should seize the opportunity I have to forgive, share, explore, and love. I can think of no greater way to honor the deceased than to live this way.”
Steve Maraboli
“I thought I could describe a state; make a map of sorrow. Sorrow, however, turns out to be not a state but a process.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
“I knew what it was like to lose someone you loved. You didn't get past something like that, you got through it.”
Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart
