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
On this week's episode I'm offering a few ways to help you find motivation after a loss. Grief can make you lose the will to do the simplest of things that used to make you feel happy, and finding motivation can be the last thing on someones mind after experiencing a significant loss. However, it is possible to heal from your pain and suffering and learn to live a full and happy life again.
The truth is that having difficult conversations can make people clam up because they feel very uncomfortable don't know what to say. Talking about death, getting older, health issues, painful feelings, or any type of loss can be challenging and intimidating, but these difficult conversations are very necessary. Listen to this week's episode as I go deeper into this subject and offer a few helpful tips.
This week I had a wonderful chat Sherrie Barch who's passion for storytelling and making room for serious and heavy conversations was a strong motivation for her to write her children's book called Heaven's Bell. The book was written to create a safe space for families to have conversation about death and dying. It encourages the sharing of memories and is meant to bring readers of all ages comfort and hope, wrapped in a shell of smiles and entertainment.
Let's be honest... no one likes to be lied to, but I'll bet at some point in your life you've lied about your painful feelings following a loss. Sadly, most of us have been given a lot of misinformation surrounding grief and loss, and we've learned how to lie about how we really feel, after all we don't want to bring others down or burden them with our sad and painful feelings.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
