Lost Dreams, a collection of firsthand stories, depicts a wide variety of lost dreams. Twenty-three authors reveal their pain, confusion, and anger when the path they followed came to an unexpected end.
For some contributors the dream shattered instantly; for others the dream crumbled over decades. Through real-life stories you will see how others have endured their tribulations. The outcomes are as individual as each person and each experience. Some authors settled into acceptance, while others realized a new life purpose, yet all benefitted from introspection that emerged only as a result of a loss.
These stories acknowledge that we all suffer hurt and loss in our lives. This book offers a glimpse of what it's like to walk in another person's shoes. I hope it inspires compassion and tolerance for others as well as a deeper understanding of the grieving process, because grief is not limited to the loss of a loved one; it can hit us at any time, no matter the loss.
