"What if deeper joy and broader vistas lie on the other side of grief?" - Elizabeth Fitch
Grief scares us. It won't let us be efficient and productive and in control, so we see it as a waste of time. It feels dead and barren and hopeless. We want it to disappear--the faster, the better. So we learn to hide it, even from ourselves.
But what if we are wrong about grief? What if grief, given the space it needs, bears good fruit? What if grief is an invitation to grow whole? What if deeper joy and broader vistas lie on the other side of grief?
Elizabeth's book gives permission to grieve. It is a breath of fresh air in a culture that pressures grieving people to hurry back to business as usual. It offers a poignant, intimate, and honest portrayal of grief--both the raw, wrenching pain of loss and the deep, surprising joy that lies on the other side of grieving well. This book is an empathetic guide both to people who are grieving and to people who love them. The Other Side of Grief is available through Amazon.
