Shakespeare said it best: “Anyone can master a grief but him that has it.”
Often, persons struggling with grief – whether over the loss of a parent, child, spouse, partner or friend – do so feeling completely alone. When the funeral is over and everyone else is back to normal, the person who has lost a loved one is left with a huge hole in his or her life. Everything that was “we” is now just “me”.
The pain can be excruciating for years, but after a few months friends and family no longer want to hear about it. “You have to move on.” “Let go and let God.” they say. This is much easier said than done. The Christian writer, C. S. Lewis offers a glimpse of his own experience in his book, A Grief Observed.
