A mid-life conversation about lost identity, grief and seeing who you are

On Between the Covers  Suzanne LaGrande interviews author, speaker, and midlife coach Janna Lopez who has just published her first book entitled, "Me, My Selfie, and Eye: A midlife conversation about lost identity, grief and seeing who you are."

Ms. Lopez shares an intimate portrait of midlife identity loss, which she characterizes not as a crisis, but as a necessary journey for self discovery. According to Lopez, part of the midlife journey involves letting go of old identities, and the grief that accompanies that loss in a culture that doesn't make room for grief. She also talks about how transitioning through one's identity loss is made more difficult by social media's constant influence.
