Understanding Various Forms of Grief Shame & Practical Ways to Keep Memories Alive

And one day, it hit me like a ton of bricks.

I felt shame. A lot of shame.

I felt shame when I talked about Michelle, and I felt shame when I didn’t talk about Michelle.

I was embarrassed to grieve the way that I needed to grieve and I was embarrassed to love the way that I needed to love.

What I would quickly come to realize is that many widows and widowers feel shame when it comes to how much they talk about, or do not talk about, their late spouses.

During this workshop I will discuss the different ways that ‘Grief Shame’ can affect us and how we can work through these feelings.

I will also share common sense (and creative) ways to keep the memories of our loves alive and well.

Join me and let’s begin the process of kicking grief shame to the curb while we explore options to preserve the beautiful memories that we shared.
