Give Grief a Chance Podcast
A podcast about bringing grief awareness out into the open. A project to help people connect, and share their experiences with grief and loss
Death does not create one single ripple in one's life. From that primary loss it creates multiple losses, though we often are engulfed in the grief of losing the person we loved and cared about so much. Our grief is also the pain of other losses that are a result of the death, and this ripple effect is known as secondary loss.
What can we do when lightning strikes twice, maybe three times or more. Grieving multiple losses is far more common than you might imagine and guaranteed, over a lifetime we will all experience many losses, it's just a part of life. The best thing we can do, is deal with each loss as it happens because if we don't and another loss occurs, we can end up in grief overload.
Feelings of guilt can manifest itself in a multitude of ways, it can bring up feelings of regret, shame, anger, and doubt, as well as feelings of failure, inadequacy, and unworthiness.These feelings if left, can eventually impact your physical health and we don't want that.
After experiencing a major loss, life can feel uncertain and uncertainty can feel scary. Grief feels like fear because it can leave us reeling in uncertainty and when the worst happens to us and and the uncertainty kicks in, we start to question ourselves as life feels overwhelming and fear keeps us stuck.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
