We don't focus enough attention on grief in our culture. In today's episode, Julie and Gina will break down what you need to know to help process grief in healthy ways.
"We do not have great history, ritual, or tradition around grief."
"We don't really do discomfort all that well."
"When we think about grief we think about death and the sadness around that, but we don't often think of all the other kinds of grief."
"Change often involves grief because we're letting go of something in order to move forward."
"The death of a dream is really intense and we often minimize that."
