End of life educator Carol Schoneberg is sharing wisdom about disenfranchised grief, the grief that society says isn’t real, but we all experience. There are a lot of reasons someone’s grief might be disenfranchised. Dysfunctional relationships where there was abuse, or former relationships like ex-spouses can be sources of grief that’s not recognized by the people around us. That disenfranchisement makes us feel isolated, even invisible. Carol teaches us how important it is to have supportive friends or family. Creating rituals to acknowledge a loss can be a great coping mechanism. Validating the loss and recognizing its impact are beneficial in dealing with disenfranchised grief. Grief is grief. There’s no right or wrong way to grieve. Each person has their own style of grieving.
