Our July Brothers and Sisters Evening is scheduled for Thursday July 27 from 7 to 9pm.
July Brothers and Sisters Evening
Prior to last month’s group I asked you to send through your ideas for possible discussion topics and I received some amazing suggestions.
One person suggested that we discuss the many issues surrounding anniversaries. Such as how do we manage them? And what self-care strategies you utilise (i.e. distraction).
I would also ask, what have you noticed about yourself and how you respond, in the lead up to, on the day, and after a significant day? I thought it may be worth starting our July Brothers and Sisters evening by thinking about some of these issues more broadly.
If we don’t spend the whole evening talking about anniversaries, then perhaps we might discuss how we handle guilt and the many forms guilt can take? Do you find yourself feeling guilty for enjoying yourself or for laughing again? Do you find yourself feeling guilty for finding it hard to remember them? Is there still a sense of guilt around what more you could have done prior to the death?
Please keep sending your ideas through and I look forward to discussing them over the coming months.
