    Ep 4 - The Art of Grief

    Ep 4 - The Art of Grief

    *** Trigger warnings of death and grief ***

    In Episode 4 I talk about 'The Art of Grief'.

    There are so many ways you can experience grief and right now, as the world is on lockdown due to a global pandemic, maybe more people than ever are experiencing the emotional rollercoaster that is grief.

    I am no stranger to grief; I’ve learned to live with it following the deaths of my husband, brother and father at the age of 16.

    But grief isn’t just experienced from death.

    It could be the loss of a job, work or a business, a relationship or a pet. It could be the consequence of not being able to do the things and see the people you love due to lockdown. It could be the feeling of isolation and loneliness; the loss of your lifestyle and routine as you know it and the not being able to be there for others as you once had.

    We need to start the conversations about the tough and taboo subjects, such as grief and mental health. They will not become less scary by not talking about it.

Hooked already

A set of difficult topics to approach but I am sure that Tabby will guide us through these candidly and drawing upon her own personal experiences. I’m expecting to be challenged, comforted and empowered.
