In this episode, Emiliya Zhivotovskaya, CEO & Founder of The Flourishing Center, walks us through her personal experiences of grieving and bereavement, along with some of the science of coping.
Loss is one of the most basic human experiences, yet we rarely discuss grief and how to do it properly. In this episode, I share some of my personal experiences with grieving and offer some key points on the science of coping. Whether the recent events have caused you to lose a loved one, a career path, a routine, freedom to travel, or even your identity, we can all practice the science of resilience by working the proper tools for grieving.
Emiliya provides thoughtful words to strengthen, inspire, and comfort those who have suffered the loss of a loved one in this episode.
When a loved one dies, the pain of loss can feel unbearable—especially in the case of a traumatizing death that leaves us feeling, broken. Emiliya offers science and personal experience-backed support to help guide you through the process of learning how to grieve.
Some of the key takeaways from this episode are:
- Time doesn’t necessarily heal all wounds
- We need to digest feelings
- 4 step process
- We don’t get over it, we get through it
- Sometimes we might bury and replace
- Create meaning
- Feel emotions fully
- Move emotions through
- What to do when supporting others: no need to fix, empathize don’t sympathize
