Some times my grief needs to hear other people share their stories and cry (and sometimes laugh) with them. Maybe yours does too? Here are some podcasts and documentaries that spoke to me.
Terrible, Thanks for Asking
You know how when someone asks "How are you?" you just say "Fine,” even if you’re totally dying inside, so everyone can go about their day? "Terrible, Thanks For Asking” is the opposite of that. Nora McInerny asks real people to share their complicated and honest feelings about how they really are.
I am a major grief fan girl for Nora! Her books are amazing too.
Speaking Grief explores the transformative experience of losing a family member in a death- and grief-avoidant society. Moving away from the idea that grief is a problem that needs to be “fixed,” Speaking Grief validates the experience of grievers and guides those wishing to support them. There is no “right” way to grieve.
