James Baldwin once shared, “You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” With this same literary brilliance, Yolanda authentically shares with us in this book, “Sorry For Your Loss,” her acquaintance with grief, loss, and bereavement. She heightens our sensitivity to the overwhelming reality when we begin to have our battles with grief. With a very transparent voice and an accessible pain, she walks us through her process; and, at some points, leaves us to wrestle with our limitations of loss.
Yolanda reminds us that it is only through the lens of understanding death and loss that we learn the sacred value of life. Loss is the ever-present neutralizer that challenges us to face our mortality and decide what quality of life we should live. Loss introduces the experience of grief as a pain that is so acute and complex that it can reduce our output of love, joy, and enthusiasm for life. It can cripple us into moments of sadness that impact our ability to reason with the circumstances around loss and rationalize our current sensibilities. Grief is a powerful tool to help us meet ourselves in the space of vulnerability that can shape our lives forever. It is an expert teacher that leaves a fingerprint within the fragility of humanity that reveals our depths of love, character, and how we share it with the world. -Napoleon Harrington MA, LPC, DBH(c)-Founder & Therapist, Ambassador Counseling and Resource Group
