Coping with Loss: Building a Bridge From Your Old Life to Your New

When you go through a devastating loss or other forms of trauma, it fundamentally disrupts your life schema. It shatters your assumptions about how the world should work, how people behave, and your core beliefs. It can be so hard to know how you can possibly move forward.

This disruption requires us to create a new system of understanding of how to live in a world, one which makes sense to us, and allows us to go forward in a meaningful way.

Over time you create a new life narrative. And in creating that narrative you are slowly building a bridge to get you from your old life to the new world you are now being forced to inhabit.

In this episode, gain more insight into this process and hear about Matt’s journey of building this bridge after his son passed away.
