Michelle St Jane is no stranger to grief, like many guests who have shared their stories.
The traumatic experience of finding her grandfather deceased when she was 15 and the subsequent "Don't talk, don't tell" approach to grief laid the foundation for her in how she addressed her grief. She would later better understand the impact that her family of origin had on her life.
Michelle left her family of origin at age 17 to travel and later found herself in love, married, and with children. However, her life would be flipped upside down when, at the age of 27, she found herself a widow unexpectedly with a 9-month-old and 5 and 6-year-old in tow.
Years later, she would experience the loss of another love suddenly in a tragic accident. Additionally, she lost the opportunity to visit and say her goodbyes when a dear friend died during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Grief is cumulative, and it is cumulatively negative. Michelle shares how she's managed to get where she is now, what helped her most along the way, and the ultimate gift grief and loss have given her.
