This is a difficult time of year for me. It’s the 4th year I have spent the holidays as a widow. I don’t like that job title. Not at all. It’s a time of year I need to be proactive to manage my emotions.
David Kessler is the grief specialist and author of many books including Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief. I’ve found a lot of value and insight from that book, and from his work.
In the short video below David articulates The 6 Elements We All Need in Grief. I found these very helpful, especially for me during the holidays. They are:
- Surround yourself with community
- Continued connections
- Grief does not define you
- Treat yourself as your best friend
- Don’t compare
- Count your wins
It’s definitely worth learning more by watching the video.
