Loss is tough. It’s the most difficult thing, I believe, we ever go through in life.
We’re never taught how to deal with loss. And there’s this tiny window where we are “allowed” or expected by society to be recovered from our loss events.
When it occurs more than once, within a close timeframe, let’s face it – it is debilitating!
I hear from one person after another that the second or the third loss is when they enter into the daze and struggle to get back on their feet.
It happened to me too.
My friends and colleagues expected me to be over it after a week…
After the funeral, or after the separation, or after a week of losing a job.
