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
Despite the passing of time, pain from long ago can stay with us and begin to affect our relationships, work, the hobbies we love, and eventually our health because, those wounds usually stem from unresolved grief that's maybe never been acknowledged and it's just been left unattended to. Now, many people wonder if it's possible to heal those wounds from trauma, rejection, or heartache, especially if they've tried everything and they feel that it hasn't helped. There are ways and there are people who can help you. So, if you're struggling with emotional pain caused from an event long ago, this is the episode for you. Enjoy!
This week's episode is all about how we start to experience goodbyes at an early age and even though they are part of life, goodbyes hurt. Whether it's the end of a romantic relationship, death of a loved one, moving away from family and friends, or saying goodbye to co workers, it's never an easy thing to do and it's something that we never really think about. So, how do you prepare yourself for such gut wrenching pain? This is where I offer a few guidelines for managing your goodbyes. Enjoy!
The death of a loved one or a beloved pet can be devastating and one of the hardest things we will experience. Part of the grieving process is learning how to cherish the memories without holding onto the pain. On this week's episode I had a Chat with Megan Stevens who is the owner of a small business called 'Tree Of Hope Creations' a place where she and her team are known for the love and compassion they put into their customized keepsake pieces which they shape using breast milk, hair, ashes, and more. She feels honored to create and heal her own grief through helping others. Knowing that her beautiful pieces help us to keep our memories close to our hearts. Enjoy!
As most of us know, there's no manual on how to heal after a loss. Some people just seem to get on with it, they move through their grief and before you know it are back into life again. However, there are a few who have a hard time adjusting to their new normal, they may feel left behind or stuck, some feel like they are in limbo, they don't know where to turn or what to do, everything has changed and they can't get used to it. If that sounds like you, listen to this week's podcast episode where I'm talking about prolonged adjustment disorder. Enjoy!
Can you relate to feeling stuck? If so then take a listen to this week's episode about accepting what we can't control. Many things happen in life that we have no control over and when those things happen, we may start to worry and as we know, nothing ever good comes from worrying. One of the best ways to cope with things we can't control is to practice acceptance as it allows us to find the energy to push forward instead of staying stuck as a victim in our situation. Enjoy!
