Make the Best of Your Life Now

Bella Lynn Thompson Author Interview

Sudden Widow shares your emotional true story of losing someone deeply connected to you and your journey through grief. Why was this an important book for you to write?

I wrote the book for many reasons. My own process and hoping to help other widows/widowers feel understood. I wanted to write something raw and authentic. A book that did not say ‘your life is definitely going to be great again.’ I wrote a book that says, ‘your life is tremendously different than the life you thought you would have and yes, it may be less colorful, but you still have to attempt to make the best of your life now.’

What is a common misconception you feel people have about loss and grief?

The most common misperception is that grief ends after a loved one passes away. Grief changes over time and you learn to manage it differently, but it does not end.

I appreciated all the great advice and experiences you share in this book? What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?

I hope anyone that lost a spouse or partner feels understood, validated, and a bit of solace from reading the book. I hope people close to a widow or widower gain a better understanding of what their surviving loved ones may experience.

What is one piece of advice you wish someone had given you when you lost your spouse?

Don’t expect people to understand what you’re going through, just hold on to your process and try everyday.
