Does your loss make your friends uncomfortable?


Are you surrounded by awkward silence whenever the topic of your lost little one comes up?  If you are, you are not alone, even though it often feels that way, I know.

After I lost my daughter it sometimes felt like the rest of the world took two steps back from me.  People avoided the topic.  People avoided eye contact.  Sometimes they flat out avoided me.

If you are reading this, then you likely know all too well the sting of the isolation and the silence surrounding baby loss.  But before you give up on the people around you, watch my video below.

Here’s a few of my key points:

  • why I’m concerned about some of the ways that “breaking the silence” seems to turn into breaking up friendships
  • the reason I believe our conversations with friends and family are so extremely difficult (hint: it’s not about you)
  • how we sometimes end up increasing the distance between us and the people we care about without meaning to
  • the perspective shift that may help you to increase closeness & receive better support in your relationships

Check it out here and if you found this video helpful then please share it with a friend and invite her to join the conversation too.  Thanks!
