Letters to Grief is a collection of letters I wrote to grief.
I wrote it for you.
For all of you who have known grief as a close companion, an intimate friend. A shadow.
I wrote it for those of you who have not yet experienced its acute pangs, but have watched people cringe with the weight of its burden.
I wrote it not to dictate how people feel or should feel, but to open a discussion about grief’s all-consuming and ever-changing nature. Its paradoxes and its unexpected qualities.
I wrote it for those who have grieving friends and don’t know what it’s like, and for those who wonder when it will pass.
I wrote it because grief is a fickle creature, and often despised. Misunderstood and underestimated. Feared, even.
Some think it can be conquered. Overcome.
From my limited experience, grief is not something that passes, at least not in this lifetime. It’s not something a person can graduate from and walk away, unchanged.
[Tweet “Grief is not a process. “]
It’s cyclical, like the moon. It waxes and wanes, ever present.
[Tweet “If you have known grief, this book is for you. “]
If you know someone who has known grief, this book is for you.
I pray that Letters to Grief will be an encouragement to you. Most of all, I pray that it will give you hope in the midst of grief.
