Today Laura will talk about a simple way to help pareavors remind themselves of some of the most important things they need to remember on this grief journey, using the word grief as an acronym. Listen in, as Laura talks about each one in detail.
G- Give yourself a lot of grace.
R – Release yourself from guilt.
I – Ignore those who are trying to fix you.
E – Engage with other pareavors.
F- Find ways to honor the life of your child.
