The Other Losses: Acknowledging and Mourning All Your Losses Along Life’s Path



Human life is a series of attachments, transitions, and losses. We explore, we connect, we love. We grow, we change, we lose.

Over and over on our journey through life, we experience hurt. We often equate the death of a loved one with the term “loss,” but really it’s just one kind of loss.  Many other losses are deeply consequential as well, from health and financial problems to divorce, estranged relationships, abuse, betrayals, traumatic events, moves from beloved places, lost or broken dreams, and more. Even happy, appropriate transitions can be partly painful, such as leaving for college, getting married, and seeing children into adulthood.

All of these significant losses can be deeply hurtful. When they arise, we naturally grieve inside. But most of us haven’t learned that just as with death, it’s essential to mourn—or express our grief—over them. It is through mourning that we integrate all our losses along life’s path. It is through mourning that we heal and learn to live well, with ever-deeper joy and meaning.

Grieving and mourning our life losses takes intention and commitment. The good news is that you can mourn and live a meaningful life at the same time. This book will help you do just that.
