It is inevitable that, sooner or later, we have to face a tragic or sad event. Whether it is the loss of a loved one or the end of a relationship, the feelings we experience are often anger and grief, and we may also feel a sense of loneliness and betrayal. If you are in this situation, Life Resumed by Paulina R. Jaramillo will be helpful. Thanks to her accurate observations, the beautiful images, and many quotes (from the Bible and other authors), plus the writing exercises, you will be able to get out of your distressed state and start living again. This book also includes many sections that relate to children facing a loss, so it is recommended if you need to support a young person.
I believe that Life Resumed is the perfect read for those facing the loss of a loved one (whatever the reason), mainly because it is a practical book. Anyone who already jots down their thoughts knows the benefits of writing, and that is just what Jaramillo invites her readers to do. Her explanations are short but effective, and I found them especially valuable when she talks about children. It is not always easy to help kids get through tough times, but here is a clear guideline on how to do it, which is valuable to adults. I recommend this book to anyone experiencing a dark period. After reading this book, it will be much easier to look to the future.
