The Mary Mac Show | Feeling Invisible

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 77, we discuss how we tend to feel invisible while attending gatherings after a loved one’s death when others don’t know how to treat us.

It’s a very strange feeling when you are at a gathering and you’re observing everyone flitting around, engaging with others, but you have this sense that people may be afraid to engage with you.

So you sit and wait and see what happens and most times, if they do come to talk with you, you will get that sense in your gut that this is all superficial.

But the irony is, I’m discovering these folks do this with others too, who haven’t even lost a loved one.

So listen in to Episode 77, as I discuss my findings.

Bless you, my friend. My warrior!

The Mary Mac Show | Grieving for an Emotionally or Physically Absent Parent

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 76, we discuss the painful subject of grieving when a parent is emotionally or physically absent. They may still be with us or have died, yet the hurt lingers.

It can be especially painful when a parent is not truly connected to you.

Whether they died in childbirth, gave you up for adoption, was seriously impaired by drugs, alcohol or criminal behavior, you suffered from these circumstances.

And as you grew, you might have been neglected or raised by your Dad after your mother’s death, or your Mom after your father’s death.

You might have been raised by a grandparent or even a great-grandparent who took you in and did the best they could.

You might have been put in the foster care system shuffling back and forth among homes.

Whatever your life handed you to this point, it may not have been ideal and you might still harbor pain from your upbringing.

Feelings of resentment, anger, bitterness, sadness, loneliness and isolation may sit just under the surface and still affect you.

We address many of these hurts in episode 76 and I encourage you to not only listen in, but to look at the links below and begin to learn EFT, get help from a hotline when you need to talk and vent, and watch Marisa Peer’s videos on “I Am Enough” so you can begin the healing process.

Sometimes when we experience the death of a loved one, many other issues surface when we are in the grieving process. This may be one of them.

Bless you, my friend. My warrior!

The Mary Mac Show | Emotional Challenges | Loneliness and Isolation

The Mary Mac Show PodcastOne of the most difficult aspects of the grieving process is when we deal with loneliness, feeling alone and isolation to protect ourselves from further pain.

In Episode 13, we differentiate between being lonely and feeling alone. We can be around many people but still, inside, we feel alone.

As our grieving process proceeds, we sometimes believe it’s better to isolate ourselves because so many people just don’t understand what we are going through. They haven’t experienced the death of a spouse, parent, child or sibling. So they just can’t feel what you’re feeling.

Sometimes they don’t follow through on visiting us or doing something for us that they promised to do and we wonder why.

But at some point, whether we like it or not, we need to slowly move from our place of isolation and build a new life for ourselves. And even though that is so unfair, it is very unhealthy to linger in the pity-party stage.

Listen to Episode 13, so you can better understand these emotions and what to do to help yourself.

Tapping To Transform Your Life | Learning the Emotional Freedom Technique

Have you ever wished you could find a way to calm your emotions and pain without drugs or alcohol or other mind-altering substances?

Well, I asked myself that question for years, suffered in silence and then in the mid-1990’s I learned of an amazing process called The Emotional Freedom Technique, created by Gary Craig, which has given me so much leverage against all the craziness this world dishes out on a regular basis.

Starting Monday, February 24th, 2020, the annual Emotional Freedom Technique/EFT or Tapping Summit will begin an online ten-day summit which is free to join.

Simply click on the above link, sign up with first name and email, and you will learn what this is all about. Yes, it may look and sound silly, but what do you care?

If this is something that will help you deal with all the emotional and physical pain of grieving the death of a loved one, isnt’t it worth your time to check it out?

And EFT is not only for grieving. You can use it for anything that you may be struggling with. From limiting beliefs, to weight loss, to financial challenges, it will work for you.

So take this link and make this happen for yourself each evening. It will be one of the most important teachings you ever take advantage of for both yourself and everyone you love, even your children and teens.

Listen to Episode 12, which I published a little earlier this week (Friday instead of Sunday) so you could spend the weekend learning about it and prepare your week accordingly.

On the podcast, I explain everything.

So go listen now.
