Life is a process of letting go: letting go of conditions we cannot control, letting go of times, places, and experiences, and letting go of people as they move out of our lives. The pain of leaving those you grow to love is only the prelude to understanding yourself and others. Sad Is Not Bad is a memoir based on "Dear Jerry" letters written to the author's husband after his death. While there are many ways to process grief, as a professional grief counselor, she had always recommended writing as a therapeutic tool. Experiencing sadness, one of a myriad of normal feelings, is part of the healing process; thus the title. You will also learn the ways in which private, personal ritual can bring comfort during the grieving process. Sad Is Not Bad - It's How We Grieve After We've Loved will help you gain insight into "living life" and "grieving loss".
