The loss of faith is like any other kind of loss, so what if we learned to mourn? A psychology of lost faith can shine a light on a path forward, but it's not easy. It's a back-and-forth movement, going between feelings of numbness, self-recrimination, and wandering to playfulness, self-agency, and belonging. If we can feel our loss, then we rediscover meaning making.
