#449. Loss is Inevitable. Here’s How to Handle It | Kathryn Schulz
Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris
Transcript

There is an unstoppable flow of gain and loss within our lives. 

Processing this flow helps us to develop equanimity. In this conversation, Pulitzer Prize-winner and New Yorker staff writer Kathryn Schulz discusses her new book Lost and Found: A Memoir, in which she explores experiencing both a huge loss, then a huge gain, and how to live in a world where both happiness and pain commingle. 

In this episode we talk about: 

  • How humans experience grief
  • A gift you can give to the grieving
  • Why she loves the clichés that remind us to enjoy the moment
  • Her broad understanding of the term “loss”
  • Why the key word in ‘lost and found’ is: “and” 
  • What she’s learned about compromising in relationships
