The topic of grief and how it affects our relationships continues! I feel like this is a really natural continuation of last week’s episode with my husband, John. If you haven’t listened to that one yet, definitely go check that out! It is a pretty juicy one—that is episode 9 of the podcast.

In this episode, I’m getting a fellow girlfriend’s perspective on relationships and grief and chatting with Shea Wingate. She is a Licensed Therapist and Grief Coach, and truly has a breadth of knowledge when it comes to the grief space. But not only that, Shea has a very painful firsthand experience with loss as well. She goes more in-depth into this in this episode, but the long and short of it is she lost her mom, dad, and sister all in less than two years.

Today, I really wanted to introduce you to her and her story because I think so many aspects of it are things you may be able to relate to or see parts of your own grief in. I know I certainly did. And, with both of us having been in relationships as we were losing the most important people in our lives, she and I had a LOT to talk about here and what that looked like and how it affected us and our partners.
