Who wants to talk about grief? Who wants to even think about grief?

Grief is something most of us want to avoid at all costs, and yet it's unavoidable. People are wired to connect, to care, so we all experience the emotion of grief.

Veterinary social worker Kristin Buller, MA, LCSW, joined me to talk about grief and how you can give yourself grace to move through it in your own way.

People often feel pulled under by their grief, surprised by the enormity of it, and derailed. It can be hard to go through the motions of normalcy.

There is no "right" way to grieve. In fact, the way you grieve one day may be very different from what feels right the next.

One challenge many people face while they're grieving is that they think they should be doing something differently. Kristin says you need to trust your heart more than your head and do what feels right to you.

I'm curious, what has given you strength when you're in a period of grief? Share your thoughts in the comments.
