Free Association: Grief and the Holidays

Remember when I told you about Free Association?  The vlog that is all about mental health advice from legit therapists, one of whom is myself?  Well, aside from doing live streams on Facebook, we also share those streams online!  Here is our debut episode: Grief and the Holidays!



Grief is a Measure of Love

Such a cheery topic, I know. But as Christmas approaches, it’s important to remember those we’ve lost; and make sure that our celebrations include an appropriate amount of remembrance.  In the video, we discuss the importance of making decisions about just how much we want to celebrate holidays after we lose someone we care about.  A few of the high points:

  1. We experience grief because we loved that person
  2. There is nothing saying that you HAVE to celebrate a holiday, or even that you have to be happy
  3. You can be joyful and sad at the same time.

Please share your thoughts about the video!  And go ahead and subscribe to our channel!  We would love to have your support!  I will be sharing our videos on this site whenever they are published on YouTube, but if you want to be a part of the live stream, you need to check out our Facebook Page!
