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
When someone you love has died, your grief journey begins and it can affect you emotionally, physically and spiritually. In order to heal it's important to understand the how and why you are feeling the way you do and how to cope with it. Come and listen to this week's guest who lovingly shares the loss of her husband and son, and tells how it motivated her to help others who are traveling on the road of grief.
Many people tell me that they can't let go and move on from their grief because they feel like it would be disrespectful to the person who's died or, that they would start to forget about them.

Our lives are full of so many losses and sadly we don't acknowledge half of them, it's usually when a loved one dies that we finally name our feelings of grief. Come and listen to my guest who is ready to share her story and give her grief a voice.
One of the biggest problems I often see, is that once people have taken their first recovery steps, they tend to forget that grief is an ongoing process and sometimes new things about that relationship may come up. If they don't deal with those issues when they arise, they may fall back into old habits and try to stuff down any new pain. Life is work, relationships are work, and nobody, can do the work for you.
How many times have you heard people say things like “just let it go” “move on” or “get over it.” Is it really that easy to let go and ignore the emotional pain that sits heavy in your heart? In this weeks episode I offer a few steps to begin the process of letting go and moving forward.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
