This wise, compassionate advice from the late Stephen Levine, one of America's most trusted grief counselors, can help heal the emotional wounds that keep us from leading fulfilling lives.
In Unattended Sorrow, Levine tells us that long after an initial loss has passed and the period of grieving has ended, an unattended sorrow lingers, accounting for a host of physical, emotional, and spiritual maladies. It is therefore not uncommon for those with unresolved grief to lean toward addictions, dangerous behaviors, or other forms of self-destruction. Levine addresses the grief from fresh loss as well the pain and troubles caused by the unresolved anguish, sadness, and delayed stress that can accumulate over a lifetime. He notes that we may never entirely overcome our sorrows but we can confront them with mercy and self-acceptance that smooth the path to healing the heart.
