While sitting in the Funeral Home, my brother grabbed this book, "How to Survive the Loss of a Loved One" and took a whirl at seeing what Lesson #27 would be. Seemed way too relevant to my life. ugh.
Lesson 27-Earlier Losses May Surface
You may have unresolved losses from the past, previous relationships, rejections, disappointments, hurts, and that wellspring of loss- childhood.,
A contemporary loss can release a prior unhealed loss.
You may feel that your responding unreasonably to a loss, in fact you may be healing past losses too.
Give yourself permission to mend it all.
Let it heal.
Make peace with your past.
