Example text

Not just through the deaths of family and friends, but also in the feelings of loss that come with the inevitable life changes we all endure. In my struggles to sort through the sweeping mix of emotions that come with grief, I have found myself endlessly grateful for Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’s work, and in particular for this book by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross and David Kessler. We are a grief-illiterate nation, and Kübler-Ross dedicated her life to helping people find peace in challenging losses. She gave us permission to grieve.

If you could change things, you would, but you ­can’t. Anger affirms that you can feel, that you did love, and that you have lost. The more anger you allow, the more feelings you will find underneath. Anger is the most immediate emotion, but as you deal with it, you will find other feelings hidden. Mostly you will find the pain of loss. The power of your anger may overwhelm you because for some it may be in proportion to the amount of lost love that it represents. It may seem that if you go into the pain, you will never come out of it or that the pain will never end.

That I can survive. I used to be afraid that if I experienced grief it would overcome me and I wouldn’t be able to survive the flood of it, that if I actually felt it I wouldn’t be able to get back up. It’s taught me that I can feel it and it won’t swallow me whole. But we come from a culture where we think people have to be strong. I’m a big believer in being vulnerable, open to grief. That is strength. You can’t know joy unless you know profound sadness. They don’t exist without each other. Kübler-Ross taught us that it is okay to be vulnerable.
