Welcome to the first Life after Loss blog!
I’m Bob Deits. My passion in life for the past forty years has been helping people get through the deep sadness and pain of grief. My book is titled Life after Lossbecause having a major loss, such as the death of a loved one, does not have to be the end of happiness and joy. Grief does not last forever. You may have heard someone say, “I will never get over it.” That’s not true if you decide to get through the experience. You can move on to a new life that is very fulfilling.
I know this not only through involvement with the losses of others, but also through the loss of my own parents, siblings and wife.
My hope is that through the thoughts and experiences of others and myself you will find hope for your own journey through grief and some specific guidance that will enable you to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Others have made it and you can too.
You can take charge of your own grief. A major part of what made your life “normal” is gone. You can create a “new normal” that will bring satisfaction, a renewed sense of energy and joy to your life.
I hope you will visit this site often. Life after Loss has helped more than 100,000 people. It has been called “The best book ever written in the field of grief and loss.” I will be sharing many of the ideas and concepts from the book here. Please feel free to contact me through our website if you have specific questions or concerns about some aspect of the grief recovery process.
Peace and joy,
