We have a conversation with Hope's childhood friend, Jessica Shreffler, to discuss grief and loss. Jessica shares her journey of losing her toddler to a drowning accident in 2006 and what she has learned in her journey of dealing with tragedy. If you have experienced the loss of a loved one, or want to support someone who has, you don't want to miss this episode!
Thoughts from this Episode:
It’s not always going to feel like this. There’s a deep level of grief where you feel like you were walking along on a sunshiny, happy path, and somebody just picked you up by your hair and just dropped you in the very pit of hell. And I just thought, Is this ever going to end? Am I stuck here now? Will there every be happiness? Will there ever be joy? The darkness you are in right now isn’t going to last. We have to be active and looking for healthy ways to deal with our grief.
