How would you cope with the loss of a loved one?

Hello everyone,

In every death, a new life for the loved ones left behind is created whether you like it or not.  There comes a point in time when people have to decide whether or not they are going to move on or stay put.  Will you let the feeling of their non-existence consume your thoughts and emotions or will the manifestation of their spiritual being provide a sufficient enough means to face life in the aftermath of their unfortunate departure?  

The effects of death can impact a person in a number of ways. How you let it impact your life could be the difference between happiness and depression. I came to the point in my life where I couldn’t simply live the same life I had been living for a few years.  

My mother was an elementary school counselor and I saw how much joy was brought to her over the years. Making a difference in a child’s life was the ultimate happiness for her.  

A friend of hers told me at her funeral that she had a very unique ability that not many possess. This particular friend was an elementary school counselor herself and admitted to me that she couldn’t do all the things that my mom could do. She stated that my mom had the ability to read the kids and really empathize with them. My mom cared about her students so much and that was obvious when you saw how the kids reacted to her when they saw her.  

I encountered a lot of ups and downs as a result of my mother's death. A lot of painful and impactful things happened after she passed. My book will go over all my experiences in extreme detail. Anybody that has ever lost a loved one, will be able to relate to it.
