Time doesn’t heal all wounds. But if you’ve lost a loved one, you learn that time and experience reshape you. As the months and years pass, you’re faced with the task of embracing the new you while honoring the bonds you shared with your person who is gone. How do you find a life you can love again? What does that transformation look like? When do you know whether to take off your wedding ring, sell the house, or start a new relationship?
In this episode, Daniel Harrell and author Clarissa Moll deep dive into conversation about the life we long for after loss. They discuss how time separates us from our loved one’s death, what it takes to release regret, and how grief can open us up to love extravagantly. Daniel and Clarissa talk honestly about how love continues after death and how that love can become a wellspring for new life after loss.
