It’s OK to Not Be OK: How to Support Yourself + Others Through Grief with Psychotherapist Megan Devine PRETTYSMART

    • Society & Culture

Psychotherapist and grief advocate Megan Devine is here to help us all understand and navigate grief better. Will I ever feel normal again? What do I say to someone who is grieving? How can I best support my loved ones in grief? Is there something I should avoid saying? Is what I’m experiencing normal?  There are so many questions when it comes to grief,  whether you’re experiencing it yourself or trying to show up for a loved one who is in it. Megan and I discuss:
Megan’s personal story of grief with sudden loss of her husband and how it changed her view of grief and her work.
How best to show up for someone who is grieving.
The number one thing we need to remember when trying to support someone in grief.
What grief hijacking is and why you should avoid it at all costs.
Why we need to change the narrative surrounding grief and the expectations we place on those who are experiencing it.
Things that happen while in grief that are totally normal even if you might feel like you’re going crazy. 
How grief changes you and if you will ever feel “normal” again.
