Is it ever possible to move on after a loss? 2020 was a huge year of grief and loss for so many countless people. One unfortunate guaranteed part of life is that we are destined to lose someone one day. Death is an inevitable experience that we all face. Losing a loved one can be devastating for people.
One of the things that make suffering a loss so hard is when a loss is sudden and unexpected. Grieving comes in different stages and each one of those stages can be detrimental to one's mental health and emotional well-being. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing guest Gina Carter. Gina is the author the memoir, "Robbed By Death...Twice." In her memoir, she discussed how she lost her new husband as well as her father.
Grief is such a hard cross to bear. For many, it is easy to fall into the trap of dying emotionally along with our loved one. Mourning has no proper timeline. Some people mourn loss for years, while some mask up their feelings and bottle things up---which can also have severe detrimental effects to our emotional well-being and mental health.
While experiencing loss, it is important to seek help and talk to a professional when the pain becomes too hard to endure. The irony of death is the reminder that it is important to embrace each and every moment and live again. Tune into the interview with Gina Carter to learn more about how she managed her grief, built her business brand---Liplock Cosmetics and focused on managing the grief process in a healthy way with therapy as well as writing.
