I would be careful with laying blame or accusing people of not being there to support you in your mourning, your grief, your bereavement. Why?
Society dictates this response as overall society ignores death. No discussions, no education about the topic. No checklist to have or review…. If people do not text or call me, I call or text them. I ASK for help-not easy to do, but sometimes you have to.
Maybe this is why my mission is to change society and its views and thoughts about death and dying. I want convos flowing, I want educational opportunities on the topic and I am making this happen here in Montreal, Canada! January 2019- ‘Food for Thought’ Discussion group starting in the heart of Monkland Village……think Death Café and go BIGGER!!!
Guest speakers, education, movies, video clips, book discussions, resources, and referrals related to the topic, peer support, and naturally snacks and beverages and maybe even a potluck dinner!
