Imposter syndrome in grief is defined as, “The persistent inability to believe that one’s grief is valid or legitimately experienced as a result of one’s own thoughts or feelings.”
I think we all feel this NEED to legitimize our experiences. Or rationalize WHY they were difficult. It’s like we feel the need to be able to adequately explain our feelings and emotions in order for them to be valid. But the fact is, if you felt it, it was real and valid. And that’s enough.
This episode will talk through my own journey of overcoming imposter syndrome and hopefully help guide others to overcome it as well.
In this episode we'll be discussing how to be grateful, even in times of grief.
I'll be sharing my own personal path to gratitude and also sharing tips to find gratitude yourself. It may take practice, but gratitude can help you move forward, even in your darkest days. We will also be talking about how to forgive your past self and move forward toward the future.
In this episode, we’re going to talk about ways you can be more empathetic and more supportive to those around you who may be grieving at this time.
Empathy is a skill we learn and practice. It’s something we continuously learn. It’s a muscle that we have to work regularly once we gain the ability. Continuous practice will allow us to grow in ways we never thought we could. It allows us to become the friend we’ve needed in the past, the friend people will need in the future and the friend people reach out to today.
