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
Coping with loss is hard, and levels of grief experienced can feel so emotionally painful and there might be times when your grief feels more overwhelmingly unmanageable than usual. What can you do when that overwhelm hits you at the worst times? Find out by listening to today's podcast for a few helpful suggestions and techniques on how to deal with grief that feels overwhelming.
From the day we are born to the day we die our lives are filled with love of people, pets, places, and passions, and life is also filled with the loss of those things we so deeply love and care for. The grief that fills our hearts can drain our energy, numbs our body, and make us feel so empty and lonely. Grief is another form of love. Acknowledge your pain, give your grief a voice, and know that you never have to suffer through grief and loss alone.
Andre is a supervisor and licensed funeral director at Roupp Funeral home. He believes that funeral ceremonies are a time of remembrance and celebration of a loved one's life, each person has a life story, and each family has a story, part of his work is to help each family remember and celebrate those stories in their own personal manner.
Our world is full of chaos and life is filled with uncertainty and worries about the future, but if you stay stuck in those thoughts and worry, then that fear will leave you feeling powerless over where you want to go in life, and worry, will lead you on that downward spiral. Uncertainty is a natural part of our lives and while we have control over many things, we simply cannot control everything that happens to us or our loved ones.
We humans are social creatures by nature and most of us crave intimacy, friendships, companionship, or just having a good connection with others. So when we can no longer see or speak to someone we care about, those memories and the pain of their absence can sit heavily in our hearts, and we don't want it to negatively affect our home, work, or our health.
