Ep 09 – Preparing for Special Occasions


There are a lot of occasions that we celebrate in our lives, things like birthdays, wedding anniversaries, Christmas and other religious holidays. But when you’ve lost somebody to suicide, these events can be very hard. What was once was a celebration or happy occasion can be very sad and painful. How you remember your loved one who has died at these times may be different depending on where you are with your grief. But thinking about how you might include your loved one in these occasions and having realistic expectations for you and others around you might help a little.
