Sometimes your grief is aggravated by people who, in spite of coming from a sincere place of wanting to support, are not really helping. They say things that are not supposed to be told to a grieving person, when really they are just trying to help in their wrong, awkward way. When we are supporting someone who is grieving, we just need to understand that they are clouded with emotions and can sometimes act irrational.
Sharing Solace was officially launched May 19, 2018, on the 8th birthday of Crystal Webster’s daughter Madelyn Elizabeth, who died in her arms just after 8 beautiful hours of giving birth to her. In this episode of the Glam Reaper Podcast, Crystal tells Jennifer that the idea of Sharing Solace was from Madelyn, at a time when she felt that she was ready to begin to heal and help others do the same.
If you’re going through a difficult phase in your grieving journey, this episode is your reminder that it's OK to feel lost and it is OK to want extra support. Enjoy!
