The Mary Mac Show | Creating a New Family

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 171, we discuss how your personal family may not be there for you along your grief journey but others step up to help and love you.

There comes a time in every bereaved person’s life when they start to wonder exactly where are the people who claimed they would be there for you along this difficult journey.

You sit at night, possibly all alone, after a long day and wish that the people who claimed they’d visit and take you out and help you when you needed it…well, where are they?

It’s additionally painful when you realize they aren’t coming to help, to console, to comfort, to be there for you at the most horrific parts of this journey.

Some are even wondering “Aren’t you over this by now?”

And that can be a very painful realization.

Life is definitely different when it become obvious that your family might not be as supportive as you once thought and it’s actually other individuals – neighbors, business colleagues, and others who step up to the plate for you.

In this episode we speak about how to handle releasing the ‘talkers’ from the ‘doers’ and how this exercise is perfectly acceptable deep into your grieving process.

Blessings to You.

You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!
