“When Holidays Hurt – a community program for the bereaved”
Each year, an inspirational theme-based program is presented with fresh ideas and personal insight about coping with grief before and during the holidays.
Recently, something has changed your life and the way you probably view the celebration of the holidays, as well as other special occasions. When your loved one dies, we struggle with finding reasons, purpose and hope. There is no answer about how you can “survive’ this holiday or other events of celebration, but the way that you approach the holiday and other occasions will determine how stressful it will be. Somehow we must adjust and move through the days as we re-establish the roots of life.
Helpful suggestions will be given for soothing the pain of holidays and special occasions. It doesn’t take away the pain or minimize the loss. But, by modifying the traditions, even slightly, it may become easier to accept the celebration of others.
