The storyteller Kevin Kling notes that, when we are born with a loss, we grow from it; when we experience loss later in life, we grow toward it.
Loss that comes later in life renders us someone we have not yet become. We are still – psychologically, emotionally, spiritually – the person we were before the loss. With the onset of the loss, we have to grow into the new version of ourselves, which involves going back over our life and reframing it to fit the person we have become, not the person we were.
We do this naturally as humans. Stories are the lenses through which we experience reality.
PS: I’ve been working on something new and I’ll be announcing it soon in this space. Stay tuned…
