The Mary Mac Show | Handling Our Loved One’s Belongings

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 144, we discuss how best to deal with our loved one’s belongings after their death.

This can be one of the most difficult decision-making processes we will go through during our grieving process.

Some people in our circle want us to get rid of their photos soon after the funeral.

Some people tell you it’s necessary to put all their clothes and other things away.

But this is both unwise and unnecessary.

Only you can make these decisions and you need to not allow anyone else decide for you.

It can be comforting to have their ‘stuff’ around to smell, hold, look at, and just be near you.

You might feel better sitting in their favorite chair, wearing their sweater, holding their stuffed animal, maybe their pillow as you sleep.

These decisions are something only you can do.

Don’t let anyone force you into making these decisions too soon.

Listen in to Episode 144 to get a better understanding of the various emotions and challenges you may feel and deal with during your grieving process.

Bless you, my Warrior!

In Episode 141, I welcome my listeners in over 85 countries and other bereaved individuals to join my new online membership – The Mary Mac Show Community – which I’ve created to help you feel supported through your grieving process.

In these uncertain time with violence growing in many places around the world, I felt an urgent need to provide a safe online portal where those grieving a death of a loved one, or those who anticipate the imminent death of someone significant in their life, would be able to visit as often as they wished, to share their challenges, anger, guilt, and many more emotional struggles as they dealt with their grief.

Many people do not have the financial resources to pay for individual counseling because insurance rarely pays for it.

Also, it is often difficult to find a counselor who has experienced the exact type of death a bereaved individual has experienced.

Consequently, the bereaved winds up training the counselor and pays for the training, too.

The Mary Mac Show Community offers many features which I’ve been searching for over a long time.
