42: Todd Olson LCSW | Loving Others Through Loss and Trials
"Some things in life can't be fixed. They can only be carried." Megan Divine
Some people say that life won't give you more than you can handle. I actually don't believe that fully. There have been lots of times that I've had things I couldn't handle on my own, and it took another to help me.
Have you ever struggled to know what to say or do for someone who is experiencing an incredible amount of suffering? Have you ever struggled to find the right words, or know how you can help?
Today I interview Todd Olson, an LCSW who shares with us the heart-wrenching experience individuals have when they lose a child. He shares with us what we can do to comfort and love those who live this nightmare. He also shares with us what doesn't help. What not to say.
I felt what he shared is applicable to many situations that we might find ourselves in while trying to support others. He also validates what you are feeling if it's you experiencing the trauma.
I want to thank Todd for sharing with us his own personal experience of losing his son, and what he has learned. I hope this interview will help us all to know how we can better support and love those who are suffering from a loss or an intense trial.
