Bringing Wellbeing to Life - Coping with Loss - 12 - Forgiveness and other strengths in coping with loss
‘Forgiveness can be important in order to re-build our sense of who we are after a significant loss.’
Tayyab explains that loss is universal and most people recover from those losses over time. When a grieving person blames themselves or someone else for the loss and is unable to forgive, or is unable to forgive a person who has died for something they did or didn’t do - this can get in the way of healing and recovery.
Tayyab discusses strategies for helping people come to forgiveness. He shares the strengths he has seen people draw upon after loss – including perspective, persistence and courage.
