161: Braving It All: How to Process Grief & Loss with Dr. Neeta Bhushan

by neeta bhushan


Quote: “It’s okay to sit in the suck. It’s okay to sit in the discomfort of those emotions. And, it’s okay even if you’re at the stage and you wanna numb it, you wanna distract, you wanna avoid, you wanna bury.” – Dr. Neeta Bhushan

Hey there, Brave Table family! In this episode, we’re diving deep into a topic that’s close to my heart: grief and loss. I’ve walked a LONG path with these emotions. In fact, I’d say I know them intimately. If you’re new here, my journey with both began after losing both of my parents and one of my brothers before I turned 19. That’s a lot for a young girl to handle. 

In this heartfelt conversation, I share my journey and insights on how to deal with grief in all its forms. We’ll talk about how our unresolved relationship with it can affect our connections with others and why it’s crucial to address. I’ll share how I’ve navigated various life stages, like motherhood, and how they impact our capacity for emotional availability.

We’ll explore how grief isn’t just about losing loved ones but also about losing parts of ourselves, friendships, and even those little things that mean the world to us.

In this episode I talk about…

  • Recognizing and honoring the multi-faceted forms of grief.
  • Acknowledging and supporting children in their grief processes.
  • Processing grief in relationships and navigating seasonal changes.
  • The ongoing nature of grief and the ways in which it can resurface unexpectedly.

However they arrive, by chance or by choice, grief and loss can be as tough to let go of as the people they’re associated with. I hope this episode encourages you to embrace your emotions, sit with discomfort, and allow yourself to feel and heal. Remember, you’re not alone in this journey; you’ve got soul support.
