Jack Began on Growing Up with Grief and the Stigma of Suicide The Widow Project Podcast

    • Personal Journals

In her debut episode(recorded in a 2x4 closet), Sandra Began is joined by her 19 year old son as they discuss why he supports his mom's writing and sharing about their life after the death of his father to suicide when he was 12. Jack and Sandra open up about how Sandra's essay "The Backpack" offered healing to them yet opened up wounds from the past. They laugh, Sandra tries not to cry and they give an honest look into what life was really like the first few years after loss.
Jack covers reentering middle school after his dad died, the differences between middle school, high school and college for a kid who is grieving and the realities of growing up with the stigma of suicide attached to them.
