Isn’t it an interesting phenomenon that the Holidays bring up SO MANY memories, some good, some painful and some are totally unexpected. Each memory brings with it lots of emotion and lots of components; let’s talk about that Empty Chair at your holiday table.
When you remember that very first death of a loved one that you experienced, what memory does that evoke? Were you completely unaware of the topic and perhaps totally NEW at this death thing? If you were very young when that first loved on died, maybe no one really sat you down to explain what was happening. Were you wondering why everyone around you was so sad, what does death actually mean anyway?
As we prepare for another Holiday Season, let’s keep in mind that for some, for many, this is a VERY emotional time and remembering that first death you experienced, may help you be a bit more compassionate to those who are new at grief and that journey.
My ‘cloud’ book, as I call it is available on YouTube and it may offer some additional insight as we all navigate the grief journey together. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWsIrc-sDBHLcgNKjiVxnxC4GMFV90KZm&si=jYA-Qvq51kfm7fkk
