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.

“Here is one of the worst things about having someone you love die: It happens again every single morning.”
Anna Quindlen, Every Last One
“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
" Mourning is one of the most profound human experiences that it is possible to have... The deep capacity to weep for the loss of a loved one and to continue to treasure the memory of that loss is one of our noblest human traits".
Shneidman (1980)
