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
Over 30 years ago Elizabeth Kubler-Ross wrote a book called 'on death and dying' in which she outlined the 5 stages of grief. She had been observing people who were living with terminal illness and how those stages are more likely to be experienced by a dying patient. However, they were never intended to be be used as a tool to move through grief.
Journaling through grief has many benefits, it can help you to process your thoughts and feelings because many people don't know what they are feeling until they write it down. Putting those thoughts and emotions into words gives you the time to deeply reflect and perhaps better understand that grief within you, it can also reveal things that you consciously haven't thought about.
Using your intuition and listening to it can play an important role in overcoming grief. Listening to it can help you to tune into your emotions and express them. It can guide you to focus in and look at how you truly feel about your loss, and it can help you to identify coping mechanisms that will work best for you.

For most, the teenage years can be turbulent years, as we know that teenagers go through many changes in their body and behaviors. It's a time where they begin to breakaway from their parents to develop their own identities. Add grief and loss to the mix, and life becomes even more complex and intense.
Survivor's guilt is a particular kind of guilt that affects people who have survived a life threatening situation. Many feel guilty because they survived while others died, some feel like they could have done more to prevent or save lives of others, and there are those who feel guilty because another person died saving them.
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. And if they are not filled with such intense pain over that person being gone, surly that must mean that they no longer miss them. Or, it may seem that way.
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.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
