Pain. This week’s podcast centers on pain. In the wake of discovering her friend’s husband has lost his battle to cancer, coupled with the news of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, Marisa releases this episode with a heavy, burdened heart. She talks about navigating grief and allowing both ourselves, and others, to grieve in their own ways. She gives ideas for how to show up for people, how to give yourself the space you need for healing, and how to let others in, even when it’s hard.
Among discussing personal pain, she touches on the current political climate and how different perspectives and beliefs can cause grief. But above all else, she encourages the community support. Our opinions should only affect the approach of support, not the support itself.
In an episode that is relevant, deep, and painful, Marisa welcomes comments, messages, and connections here or on this written post on the subject. Please feel free to reach out if you are grieving or if the content resonates with you in some way. Above all else, her message with this week’s episode is this: There is hope that comes from even the most painful of situations. There is light in the darkness, and if we choose to cling to one another in these tough times—we will find it.
