Disenfranchised Grief

Updated: Jun 14, 2023

Your grief for the loss of your Mother or Father is not welcome in the workplace, the gym, among extended family, friends, or in fact in our society.

After the funeral and the mandatory 3 days bereavement leave, it’s back to normal. The problem is you’re not back to your “normal” and you’re different than before you lost your parent.

Grief changes you. So, there’s no going back to “normal”. Losing your parent is a profound, traumatic loss and you need time and support to grieve and construct life after this loss. But society has no time or place for grieving.

From the moment we’re born parents are fundamental to our lives. There wasn’t a time before we had parents. Most likely they had the most significant impact on you (even if the relationship with them wasn’t great, or they were absent or abusive).
For the first time in your life, you have to unpack life without a parent's presence. Who are you now, it changes your identity? Grief brings with it a huge range of emotions that come in waves. There’s a lot to unpack and discover about you now.
But you do not have to do it alone.

I’m here as one who has experienced the loss of both parents in adulthood and a certified coach to support and show you how you can reconstruct your life.
