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 grief is taking its toll on your emotions it can also be affecting your relationships or marriage. On this week's episode I talk about ways to help each other during these challenging times because there are many health issues that can arise from not grieving. Therefore, it's important to find ways to cope, take care of ourselves, and support each other, because your spouse or partner may grieve very differently than you.
On this week's episode I'm talking about something called expat grief. Even if your moving to a new country for positive reasons, like a better job or a better life, it's not always easy and there are challenges to face plus moving in itself, is a major grief event. I believe that a lot of expats suffer from this type of grief as it's not only centered around death, it's many losses, so it's important to recognize that these thoughts and feelings that come up from time to time are normal and natural.
When you suffer a broken heart there is no set formula for getting back on your feet and jumping into life again, that's because everyone's grief is unique to them. Whether it's the loss of a job or a loved one lost to death, it's important to know that you can get on the road to being happy. On this week's podcast episode I offer a few suggestions to help you start moving forward, so that you can let go of emotional pain and get back into life again.
I don't think anyone wants to see another person suffering we only want them to feel better, and when it comes to helping people who are grieving most of us try to offer some comforting advice. However, in the moment when we are trying to be helpful we might say things that negatively affects the griever. On this week's episode we take a look at a few of those comments and explain why they can be so painful to the griever.
Come and listen to this week's episode where I get to chat with entrepreneur, life coach, and author, Cindy Baumann. In 2007 Cindy's fast track life came to a screeching halt when she had to deal with the unthinkable. Cindy received the news that her twenty six year old son Shaun had suddenly died. In Cindys book Grief Warrior you will find authentic accounts of gut wrenching grief, and after years of struggling Cindy was lead on a journey of self-discovery and enlightenment.
