In this episode Kelly and Jeffrey have a meaningful discussion about the elements of loss often left unsaid. As an individual in this society we are conditioned about how and what is legitimate to grieve — and what we should share with others. Kelly walks us through all grief reactions. Sometimes when we lose someone, we are not grieving for a beautiful connection, rather a connection we never had. All loss has a grief associated it, and grief has many faces. As you listen, take comfort in knowing we honor ALL of your feelings related to loss. The complexity of grief is something we can seek to understand as we find helpful and healthy ways to experience its many facets.
