The uncharted journey of life after loss
Two weeks ago, we set off on an unflinching exploration of death. As all journeys do, it started with a very simple first step: talking about how we talk about it. The groundwork laid, we then viewed the topic through the eyes of people who deal with it on a daily basis, a place where the personal crosses over with the professional.
Today, we take the “professional” out of that equation with our most intimate conversation yet.
Among life’s most profound challenges is the death of your parents — something one of my best friends experienced. At two different points, she had to say goodbye to a person who made the greatest impact on her life. Her story is one of grief, resilience and the enduring strength of the human spirit.
This episode delves into her experiences and the lessons she learned, as well as how her journey with death has shaped her into the person she is today. A reminder of the importance of finding hope even in the darkest of times.
