When I asked you listeners to suggest topics for podcast episodes, one request that came up a lot was around grief and people asking what the right way to grieve is. Grief is such a sensitive topic, and I need you to understand that I’m coming at this from a place of honoring that life is challenging and there is no right way to grieve.
Now, there are what we know historically as the five stages of grief – but there is a lot more to it than simply working through these five stages and then washing your hands of it. This is going to require more work than just following a step-by-step.
Tune in this week to discover how to work with and allow your emotions, how to set up boundaries around your grieving process when dealing with other people, and eventually how to accept the reality of the situation. Losing someone we love is awful, and it will feel like nobody understands what you’re going through. There is some truth in that, but that doesn’t mean that grief has to hold you back forever.
As well as ASK JODY ANYTHING, I’m hosting a couple of webinars over the next few weeks around dealing with anxiety and how to deal with loved ones questioning or leaving the church. Click here to find out more.
