Losing a loved one is never easy. When it is your child, it’s all the more difficult. Parents are not supposed to outlive their children, so most are unprepared when it happens.
A little part of you dies, along with your child. You’ll never really “get over” their passing, but you will learn to live with the loss, making it a part of who you become.
Karen Chaston share’s her three-year journey following the unexpected death of her son Dan at age 27. She shares with readers how her child’s death compelled her to rethink her priorities and re-examine the meaning of life.
Her journey is one of gratitude, laughter, love, joy, reflection and contemplation. She talks of how she honours her child, whilst also recognising the need to re-engage in life and find pleasure in new experiences.
It may seem impossible, but you can go on to find happiness and purpose in life again.
