One part of grief work that is difficult and painful to navigate after the death of a loved one is our anger. 

Anger can show up in so many ways throughout our grieving process. Angry that we couldn’t fix it, angry that the person is missing out on all that’s happening here on earth, and for Antonella, anger that she didn’t know how sick her brother actually was before he died.

In this episode, we’re talking about the anger that comes with grief, and how Antonella has navigated it in the years since her brother’s passing.
