On this day of awareness of perinatal loss, I share an interview of my cousin who lost her 2-month-old daughter. I also include the link to an interview I did about child loss, trauma and my grief journey.
I post an update about our family and how the accident and Covid-19 pandemic affected our daily life. I talk about some challenges with grief, child loss and virtual school (learning).
An introduction to the popular 5-Stages Model of Grief, with concrete examples and scenarios. I also talk about 30 other types of events that can cause grief.
In this post, I talk about the differences between sympathy, empathy and compassion, and their definitions with concrete examples. I share my perspective on how to be more empathetic and compassionate. For some people, they will be empathetic but not necessarily compassionate. Others still will show their support by being compassionate even if they are not necessarily empathetic.
It is important to keep talking about our children who died. Friends and relatives mistakenly believe that it is best to avoid mentioning the deceased child in the presence of the bereaved parent. The worst thing to do is ignore that they existed, and ignore their grief and loss.
