Year 2, Day 71 - fulfilling one of G’s dreams - G loved flying and he loved the design of planes - part professional and part personal interest. Today I took baby R to the place G was most excited about taking him to - the runway visitor centre....to spot planes. Baby R loved it - definitely his father’s son, as I absolutely detest planes and flying. He shouted aeroplane at every devoted plane spotter there, waved a wooden plane and plastic scooter at them and then we ate chips. Reckon G would have been pretty damn proud of us both✈️ #widow #youngwidow #widowedandyoung #planespotting #grief #griefjourney #griefandloss

Seven years ago today, 20 first graders and six educators were murdered in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Exuberant, bubbly six-year-old Charlotte Bacon was among them. —— Charlotte’s mother, @joann.bacon, shares a deeply personal and poignant account of how she copes during the excruciating ‘anniversary season’ that starts on the first day of school and runs through Charlotte’s February birthday. Click on the link in our profile to read “My Neverending Battle of Fall and Winter.” We all owe it to her to bear witness to her story. . . . . #modernloss #grief #seasonsofgrief #friendsandfoes #grieving #grievingmama #grievingmother #bereavedmother #grievingparents #gonetoosoon #sandyhook #26angels #childloss #griefandloss #griefneverends

Eventually the holidays will get easier, but only if you allow yourself to experience the grief of going through them without your person. #holidayhope #holiday #grief #griefjourney #griefandloss #griefsupport #nightingalecentre #guelph #griefhealing #grievingprocess #kidsgrief #kidsgrieve

Some people think grief is something they should just “bounce back” from permanently. While it would be great if it were that simple, grief is not like stubbing your toe. The pain lasts far longer and goes much deeper. Understand that grief is not a destination. It’s not a place that you visit only once. Once grieving, always grieving - although, with time and love and support, you'll feel its clutch on you lessen. Grief is a journey and that journey can be ongoing for months, years, or even decades depending on what or who you’ve lost. Many people have heard of the 5 stages of grief. The idea is that during grief, you’ll walk through 5 distinct emotional phases: *Denial *Anger *Bargaining *Depression *Acceptance Most people cycle through the stages of grief several times and in a different order each time. That means no one person’s way of grieving will look/feel exactly like yours (nor should it). Grief is not linear. You may bounce back and forth between the various stages for as long as it takes for you to grieve. Personally, I never experienced Denial or Bargaining, but I have experienced Anger/Guilt, and for me, Acceptance is part of the Depression stage. Like, I'm depressed because I accept that I'll never see my loved ones again. Anyway, I'm here to tell you that you're not the only one grieving this holiday season. There are millions of us out there! I'll be here in my little corner holding space for all of you to grieve without judgement, but with plenty of compassion.

Be present as your relative, friend, or coworker experience and cope with their pain...even if their approach isn’t the healthiest. This means not imposing your beliefs,limiting your need to control, empathize, and acknowledging their pain. Remember, how he/she copes with pain has nothing to do with you. However, your presence is evidence of your care and effort to support them. So be present, not judgmental. #bepresent #bepresentinthemoment #supportsystems #anxiety #depressionhelp #griefandloss #copingwithpain #healingfromtrauma #innerpeace #innerstrength #dontjudge #therapyhelps #therapyheals #therapist #blacktherapist #counselor #washingtondc

Yesterday I once again had the privilege of bearing witness to a story of grief during a recording of another episode of Grief is a Sneaky B!tch. My guest, Krissy Teegerstrom, artist, creative consultant and podcast host of @beyondandbackpodcast, brought so much truth and light to the conversations around how trauma and grief and really all of our experiences are carried by our bodies.⠀ ⠀ As someone who is trained and practiced in the art and science of talk therapy, I certainly believe there are ways in which attending to how our mind holds and makes meaning of our experiences are helpful. AND I continue to recognize the harm caused by the fallacy that our mind and body are not intimately connected, that they are not really one. I think we can all, at least anecdotally, recall a time where we had a felt sense memory, that our bodies expressed a reaction to a lived experience. Yet, so few of us show up curious to what our bodies are trying to tell us. I have much to learn, much to practice in this domain, and I will continue to share my learning with you along my journey.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🎧🎧 The episode with Krissy will be released in January, so don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE NOW to Grief is a Sneaky B!tch so you won’t miss out. Naming The Loss, which aired this week, also explores the ways in which unexpressed emotions can get trapped in our bodies. Link in Bio or find it wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts! 🎧🎧

Z E R O⁠ This holiday season, what if you reduced your expectations of family to zero?⁠ ⁠ Particularly if you are interfacing with seasonal triggers, a loss, anxiety, depression or grief — what would it be like to reduce your expectations to zero. Z e r o.⁠ ⁠ Stressful times don’t bring out the best in people. Add to that the discomfort a family member might feel because they don’t know how to support you, and it’s a set up for disappointment. It’s easy to fall into the story of alienation, not feeling understood (or whatever your particular version is). Really, though, it’s not that they don’t love you. They are just distancing themselves because of their own inability to handle intensity. Or maybe that is how they were taught to respond to emotions. And likely the are caught up in their own stories.⁠ ⁠ So go in expecting nothing. Not expecting it to be bad, just expecting nothing. How might this change your experience?⁠ ⁠ #perspective #expectations #holidays #holidaystress #holidaygrief #grief #loss #griefandloss #support #family #selfcare

“When a relationship is ripped away from us through death, it takes the heart time to let go,” Dr. Campbell told Teen Vogue. “We still have things left unsaid, emotions and experiences we want to share, things to get closure on and a place to receive or feel a sense of connection and comfort. I tell my patients, young and old, that although our loved one's may not be here in physical form, that they are right next door watching over us. We can find a sense of comfort in feeling that they are still close to us, conversations can still be had.” –Adryan Corcione, "For Those in Grief, Talking to a Dead Loved One Is Good for Mental Health," Teen Vogue. ° ° This article was published in 2018, but it's an oldie but goodie. Love the way it makes a rather academic subject, "continued bonds," accessible and normalized. How do you nurture continued bonds with your loved ones? I talk to my people, sometimes daily - I'm a big talker so speaking out loud to them feels natural and comfortable for me. – Lori ° ° #EOLDoula #PhillyDeathDoulas #ContinuedBonds #DeadPeopleListenWell #DeathandDying #GriefAndLoss #Bereavement

The only thing I’d add is that our other responsibility is to leave room in conversation to talk about the ones who are no longer with us physically. To bring them with us into our new memories and traditions. #adayinthelifewithgrief • 📸 by @emilycoxhead
