Back in November 2020, I started a series of collaboration posts about how we cope with loss.
I think about loss from time to time, as you probably know if you’re a regular reader over here. I’ve discussed recovery from loss of a baby and other people’s reactions. But, we don’t only struggle or grieve over the loss of a person – whether they were fully-formed or not. Sometimes loss is part of growing into the person we have become, sometimes it leaves us feeling like something’s fundamentally missing, sometimes we can’t remember what it was like before we lost whatever it was.
In this series of posts, I asked some of my favourite blogging colleagues to write about a loss that they’ve experienced and how it affected them. You can find the full list here.
I’d like to invite anyone reading this who has thoughts to share, about any type of loss, to get in touch about sharing your story as I restart this series.
I don’t want the series to focus on death specifically and I hope that we all recover from these experiences able to find a positive consequence for ourselves somewhere.
The kinds of things I was thinking about as topics were:
- The death of someone
- Losing a beloved object
- The end of a friendship
- Memory loss, in yourself or someone close
- Job loss
- The sense of having lost yourself
- Anything else really….
If you’re interested, let me know. I’d love to feature anything you’d like to write.
