Embracing Life After Loss: A Gentle Guide for Growing through Grief by Allen Klein is a heartwarming book on how to understand the grieving process and deal with it. The author guides readers through the five stages of grief going from loss to laughter - losing, learning, letting go, living, and laughing - making it easy for them to understand the grieving process better. The book will give readers hope and courage to embrace life fully after a loss and help them go from surviving to thriving. The comforting heartfelt thoughts tell readers how humor can be used as a healing tool to free them from the grip of loss and pain and move forward in life. The author's experience of losing his spouse and the lessons he learned from that experience make his advice positive and uplifting and, as he mentions, sometimes a loss can be a wake-up call to celebrate life before it is too late.
Loss and grief can be overwhelming at times, and though it hurts, a loss can make those who are going through it grow spiritually, becoming stronger, wiser, more compassionate, and appreciative of all the moments they have on earth. The author tackles the subject with wisdom and caring, and his practical advice on how to move from loss and grief to living life again can be applied to take that leap into the future instead of being a victim of grief. The book will help all readers grieving and dealing with loss to look at life with a new perspective and tap into their inner strength which they never thought they had until they experienced loss. The tips are thought-provoking and gentle and will help all those dealing with loss fully embrace it and enjoy life again. The journaling at the end of the book, to write down thoughts, is helpful to readers when it comes to putting down their feelings and understanding of life and living it well, without any regrets.
