A point of frustration for many bereaved parents after child loss is feeling like we are being judged for still missing our children.
There are some people around us who think we should be “moving on” or be “over it” by now, as if the death of our child is like a bad cold. Yes, the death of our child was an event, a moment in time. But that moment has disfigured us for the rest of our lives.
In today’s episode, Laura shares a lot of the reasons we continue to struggle with grieving the loss of our child, even years later.
If you know someone who wonders why you aren’t back to your old self yet, or thinks something is wrong with you for not moving on by now, you may want to consider passing this episode along to them.
