Grief In Common - Winston's Wish

08-04-2024 • 33 mins

How does grieving change as decades pass? Maya returns to Grief in Common to talk about the impact of childhood loss, and Teigan shares her experience of losing her mum when she was 11 and how she’s grown up with grief over the last 10 years. In this episode, they explore their different grief journeys but also find plenty of common ground. The conversation covers key milestones, exploring the guilt of not grieving every day, and how death became normal to them.
