UP CLOSE & GRIEFY: Grief Expectations vs Reality

In today’s episode, we talk about the expectations versus the reality of grief. We share our personal experiences with the surprising parts of grief, as well as tips and stories from our community.

Some of the many misconceptions we cover are:

  • Feeling sad 100% of the time
  • Different grieving styles 
  • Finding meaning from grief
  • That the death loss is the only form of grief
  • The five stages of grief 
  • Getting “over” grief, or “moving on”
  • Being intimate after losing a partner
