Do you feel like a widowed imposter? Have you questioned whether you belong in the “worst club in the world?” Are you keeping secrets about how your person lived or died? When we lose the one we love, we are forced to reckon with who our person was, how they lived (and maybe how they died), the good, bad, and ugly of our relationship, and sometimes even the secrets we kept due to stigma, fear, or guilt. This workshop is for anyone who is struggling with feeling like they have to hide parts of themselves, their story, or their spouse’s story from others.Together, we’ll consider all the ways society (and sometimes even ourselves) silence and shame our stories. We’ll unpack the tools necessary for moving forward with authenticity: courage, boundaries, genuineness, humility, honesty, and self-respect. We’ll rumble with the why and break free of the toxic belief that our stories aren’t to be told as they are. We’ll also consider ways to heal your relationship when there is only one of you left to do the work. Your imperfect love and your loss are just as valid as others.
