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
For as long as we’ve lived, we have died and that we cannot deny. Another part of life is that we will at some point along the way all lose someone or something we love and we will grieve, no one escapes, it’s the inevitable. And yet, the subject of death, dying, grief, and all its emotions is still taboo and for most people, a difficult subject to talk about.
As the end of the year approaches, so do the holidays. And for many it's a time when they experience the recurrence of grief, as they remember the happy times with a deceased loved one or an ex that they loved and deeply cared for. When grief shows up around this time, it can be very confusing and overwhelming.
Compassion fatigue is a broadly defined concept that can include emotional, physical, and spiritual, distress in those providing care to another. It's also associated with caregiving where people and animals are experiencing significant emotional or physical pain and suffering. It has also been described as 'the cost of caring for others.'
Many disasters like hurricanes, wildfires, mudslides, or transportation accidents can be sudden and cause way more damage than reported. Therefore, it's important to understand your emotions and grief that follows a natural disaster in order for you to cope with those painful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, that show up.
