Today, I talk about the holidays after suicide loss and how we can approach them - you see there really is no 'should do's' only "could do's" -- remember -- your journey, your way. I will also dispense with the notion that many of us didn't (somewhat) dread the holiday season before - you know all of the stress and money and expectations and family and, and and... right? BUT, no doubt there was also joy and fun and irreplaceable memories. So, after loss, many of us just face the whole notion "what's the point" OR "why bother" because we just can't, right?
Let me just say it - IT'S OK! WHATEVER you want to do - or don't want to do - IT'S OK! Listen to the episode and I will (try) to untangle my thought s bit so as to be a help (maybe).
You are in my heart and thoughts - always, but especially during this time of year. Take care of you and I hope we can talk soon!
