This weekend, on 2nd May, marks five years since our youngest son, Nicholas, died.
After five years of navigating grief, I wanted to share the three main lessons I've learned about acknowledging milestones and anniversaries.
In this episode, I share:
- How we've acknowledged anniversaries over the past five years
- How my grief has changed over the years
- How emotion around anniversaries can be unpredictable
- That it's okay for the milestone to look different each time
- That grief is such an individual journey and those around us won't necessarily experience or acknowledge a milestone in the same way we do
- We need to ask for what we need.
Also mentioned in this episode:
The story of Nicholas' death can be found at Episode 3.
Discussion with Lisa Corduff about grief in Episode 38.
