Have you lost a spouse through death or divorce? Zonnebelt-Smeenge and DeVries help you get through the pain and move forward with your life. Offering psychological and spiritual support, this compassionate guide addresses the "aloneness" you feel, shows how to redefine your identity as a single person, and encourages you to reinvest in your new life. Paperback.
While we don't like to think about it, marriages eventually do come to an end, either with the death of a spouse or tragically through divorce. This "end" of a relationship leaves the other partner alone and facing an uncertain future. Whether widowed or divorced, the feeling and experience of aloneness--moving from being a "we to a me"---is a common one. This latest book from noted grief experts and authors Zonnebelt-Smeenge and De Vries focuses on two of five grief journey tasks--separating oneself and reinvesting fully in one's own life--offering a unique self-help, psychological, and spiritual guide for the process of helping either the widowed or divorced to redefine and reinvest in life.
