|If you are wondering… yes, please talk about your deceased loved one. In this post, I want to discuss How to cope with grief and loss by talking about your lost loved one.|
Don’t be afraid to mention his or her name.
Share memories, feelings and sorrow. Here are three hints to start the conversation
Talking about your loss and your feelings is good medicine for working through your many emotions and feelings surrounding your loss. Sharing provides an outlet for releasing your thoughts and a way to make sense of where you are. Another person can serve as a good sounding board for you.
Give yourself and others the opportunity to speak and share. As you participate in more conversations with others, you’ll realize all the beautiful memories you have captured with your loved one. Plus, you’ll hear memories, stories, and perspectives from others you may not have known.
Discussion is one of the many ways to mourn your loss, but remember to do what is best for you.
How can you let others know that you want to talk about your beloved person?
If you or someone you love is overwhelmed with grief and feels empty, sad or alone, I invite you to take advantage of my very special, complimentary “Healing from Heartbreak” 50 minute grief breakthrough support session via phone.
You’ll leave our conversation feeling more energized and inspired to know that healing is possible… and get your first steps for recovery based on your unique loss.

Here is what one client said about our time together: “I received more from Chelsea in 40 minutes than I did from my current therapist in a year.– A bereaved mother who lost her son to suicide.
Say My NameWhatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy ways which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity…
Why should I be out of mind just because I am out of site?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.
All is well.
Henry Scott Holland (1775-1864)
