My personal struggles with grief

Carolyn Begley Daley Author Interview

Pain: the beacon of love is a collection of 12 notes that provide information on coping with the loss of a loved one. Why was it important for you to write this book?

It was important for me to share my personal struggles with grief and the consequent health problems that I experienced. I thought that these experiences would be of great benefit to all those who struggle with indefinite grief. The deaths from the pandemic underscored the need for defined coping skills to deal with overwhelming grief around the world.

What is a common misconception you think people have about grief?

If we do not forgive others, we will not be forgiven. Matthew 6:15. God is love. 1 John 4:7-12

What is one piece of advice someone gave you that changed your life?

Pain Love’s Beacon Learn God’s perspective on pain. He loves you in your joys and in your sorrows. Accept him as your Lord and your Savior.

What do you hope readers take away from your book?

Grief will simply go away if it is not discussed and processed.

Pain has been my teacher for many years of its sorrows and joys, exposing the path of love that leads us to the cross and the great love of God for us. I wonder what it is, this pain, these tears? If grief is my teacher, what do I need to learn? Grief is a path of love that each of us has to walk alone. My tears drip, fall, flow and contain my healing as I walk on my pilgrimage of pain that leads me to the joy of God’s love.
