Episode 6 - Good Grief
The holidays are not always Hallmark-card-perfect. Sometimes they are just as much a reminder of who we have lost in our lives as those we are grateful to have. Laura and her mom Mary Ellen openly share their story of grief and hope. After the loss of her father, Laura naturally begins to face difficult questions about death and dying and how to make sense of it all. Laura shares just how long it took her to begin her grieving process and despite the best efforts of her loved ones, how the natural human discomfort with death made it harder to connect with the well-intentioned support that they were offering. Laura talks about how death gets “absorbed into your story” and just because people stop asking about how you’re doing after the funeral doesn’t mean that you aren’t still interacting with the grief daily.
