This week on It’s OK that You’re Not OK:
Is There Enough Love to Go Around?
The world can feel like such a lonely place sometimes. You ever feel like there’s not enough love and support to go around? Like, there’s a severe shortage of compassion in the world, both for you and well, everyone? Me too, friends.
To get us into this topic, this week on It’s OK, we cover grief comparisons, like whether divorce and death should be compared, or if the death of anyone should be compared to the loss of a pet. Of course the short answer is no: grief comparisons are never useful. For the long answer though – listen to the show.
This episode is basically my TED talk, if I had one, on how we create that support-filled world we all want (and deserve). It’s my personal favorite episode of season one, brought to you again for this Valentine’s day.
In this episode we cover:
- Why comparing divorce to death, or pet loss to child loss, is a Very. Bad. Idea. (usually)
- Is it ok to be sad about a musician or actor’s death, even if you never met them?
- How to treat compassion like an abundant resource AND have good boundaries all at the same
- The path to the love-filled, support-rich world we all want (it’s not easy, but it’s worth it)
