Good Grief: Living Through Loss
The past year and a half I have experienced quite a bit of loss in my life and struggled with some difficult situations. Without going into too many details, I had to say goodbye to a friend, cherished family members and dealt with illness within my family. As with everything else in my life, I find it easier to cope by having a soundtrack to listen to whilst I'm dealing with hard times. The songs aren't necessarily to uplift me or distract me from these difficulties. In fact, I would say the songs make me face my grief and completely immerse myself in it. This approach may be helpful to some, while others may do better to have a more upbeat soundtrack. Nevertheless, I've put together a list of songs that are my "go-to" processing songs. The ones that may bring out the tears, but also help me reflect on things. Hopefully they help you as well.
