Grieving the death and the relationship you didn’t have

Grief can be so complicated and layered and that is what we are going to address in this episode. When my friend Kelly Cook recently lost her father she asked me if it was possible to also be grieving the relationship she wished she could have had with her dad.

That grief is very real and complex and is something we really needed to talk about and so we did.
