Step 2: Get to Grips with Grief

Video Grief is difficult to understand, unless you’ve been through it yourself. That’s why so many people who’ve lost a loved one, or are preparing to lose someone feel isolated and alone. It will be hard for you to Realize the Gift in Goodbye unless you understand what you or your family will experience after the death of someone.

By understanding the impact of grief, and how you can encourage others to have a healthy recovery from loss, you will be better equipped to create your own legacy of love and overcome any loss in your own life.

Explore the resources available here, books, organizations, support groups and products. Don’t forget to check out Chapter 3 in my book, Your Legacy of Love.
