Grief, while uncomfortable, is something we must acknowledge and share with those we love, says Bishop's Director of Counseling Megan Broderick.
We are experiencing loss on a number of levels right now. We owe it to ourselves and to our children to acknowledge the losses we are all experiencing, from illness and death to missed parties, vacations, haircuts, performances, games, and everything in between. We are sad, we are confused and we are grieving all the losses, big and small.
The best way we can respond to each other is by offering space for our loved ones to feel validated. There are very few answers right now, and very few solutions. But there is room to connect, to validate the experience of others, to be curious about what it is like for them, and to love them through it.
