Episode 17: Holidays: You Have Permission to Establish New Rules
In Episode 017, “Holidays: You Have Permission to Establish New Rules”, I offer my personal experience of walking through the holidays as a griever. Christmas jingles did not find their way onto my playlist or radio dial for up to four years. Still, today, an aching heart and torrential tears will be triggered by the simplest of tunes or cheeriness of others, specifically as Christmas approaches.
And for our non-grievers, you will find specific examples of how you can help your grieving family member or friend. There will be no reason for you to say, “what can I do for my friend this holiday season?” after listening to this episode. Taking notes is recommended.
