Grief can set in at the most inconvenient of times.
During a business meeting, all it took was one look at your coworker’s butterfly mug, and you’re remembering your mother giving you the nickname “Butterfly.” You choke back tears, hoping no one notices.
You’re out with your family at the park and see the same pine tree that sheltered you with your father while reading together. The memory brings a wave of grief that immediately drains you.
Not everyone you know may understand these experiences. Thanks to digital podcasts, it’s easy to access conversations with others sharing grief situations similar to yours – from a comfortable distance.
