Podcast: Coping with loss during the holidays
"Sometimes the best you can do is accept that you cannot accept. It can be too much if you've just come through something or you're still in something to say 'well I need to accept this and move on.' That's not going to happen." - Katherine Ingram, M.A.
This holiday season comes at the tail end of a year full of grief, whether that's the loss of a person, a job, home, comfort or the life we knew before.
That's why I wanted to have Katherine Ingram (a.k.a Grief Girl) on the podcast. Katherine is a life transitions coach, counselor, speaker and award-winning author of "Washing the Bones: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Transformation" and "Grief Girl's Guide: How to Grieve, Why You Should and What's In It for You."
In this episode, we talk about:
- Tangible tools on dealing with loss and grief
- Why it's OK to not accept what's happening
- Expectations for the holidays
- Handling losses
- What a loss is
