54.0 Grief Milestones. How to Cope with the Happiness of the Holidays.


The holidays are a real grief milestone – much like your loved one’s birthday, day of death and anniversaries.  You know they are coming and yet there is no good way to prepare for how you will feel and how to make it through.


I felt a lot of anxiety, sadness and guilt as the holidays neared.  The guilt came from knowing that as a Christian, I should be so focused and thankful for the reason we celebrate Christmas.  But all I wanted was to crawl in a hole until December 26th


In today’s episode, we’ll talk about letting go of guilt and how to cope with everyone else’s annoying happiness.  Sorry, not sorry – it’s truth.


WORD of the Week  Deuteronomy 31:8

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
