As we continue our December theme of grief, I invite a woman who I absolutely adore onto The Gurls Talk podcast; my dear friend, @victoria_lampley.
Victoria kindly opens up about the devastating impact of her mother’s cancer diagnosis, and how becoming a mother herself shortly after she died was such an impossible transition.
We also discuss the importance of talking about grief and how to be a good friend to those who are suffering from bereavement.
To read more from Victoria’s quote on strength, read ‘On Grief & Grieving’ by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler.
