On this episode of Build a Life After Loss, I welcome a very special guest, Shelby Forsythia. Shelby is the very talented host of Coming Back: Conversations on Life After Loss.
Coming Back is one of the first grief podcasts that I listened to a couple of years ago when I first became interested in podcasts and the value of the conversations in this space.
Grief’s first impressions on Shelby’s life occurred when she was a college student. When it did, grief piled on hard, and culminated in her most impactful loss, the death of her mother.
In this insightful conversation, we talk about Shelby’s loss story, how grief impacted her, the sting of secondary losses, the search for self, and the things that helped Shelby to start reengaging and rebuilding her life. among other things.
Here’s more about Shelby including links where you can find her.
