We all face the ultimate situation of grieving at one point or another in our lives, it is just part of life. My interview with author and founder of a non-profit for women who are dealing with widowhood and grief Carole Brody Fleet really sheds new light on a topic that frequently is swept under the rug or not discussed.
Her new book entitled “Happily Even After” which is a compilation of questions and answers asked by the women in her community and all of the issues they are faced puts widowhood into perspective. Obviously the sudden death or protracted illness of a spouse or significant other has lots of emotional challenges associated with it. One of the important aspects that Carole bring out in the book is that widowhood does not need to define you as a person. You will in your own time move on from the grieving process to one day build a new life for yourself. It does not however mean that you must place all of the memories into the far reaches of your mind. Cherish time and embrace the wonderful life you once had with that special person, but don’t let it define who you are.
Carole’s book is full of engaging and interesting stories and questions from women from all over the world who have written in to Carole asking for advice. This guidebook as she calls it is designed to provide gentle guidance, support and help for the reader trying to come to grips with their loss. Anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one or the potential loss will want to read this book and understand how to better cope and live “Happily Even After.”.
