Resilience in the Face of the Sudden Loss of a Husband

By Dr. Robert Brooks

This past week I was very moved by the reflections and emotions expressed by another commencement speaker, Sheryl Sandberg, to graduates at the University of California at Berkeley. Sandberg's life is filled with many accomplishments, including her past role as Vice President of Global Online Sales and Marketing at Google, her current position as Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, and her authorship of the bestselling book Lean In....

At the end of her commencement address, Sandberg returned once again to the importance of connections in our lives. "It is the greatest irony of my life that losing my husband helped me find deeper gratitude - gratitude for the kindness of my friends, the love of my family, the laughter of my children. My hope for you is that you can find that gratitude - not just on the good days, but on the hard ones, when you will really need it."

And she emphasized, "I learned that resilience can be learned."
