This week on Everything is Fine


Our guest is Rebecca Soffer, who co-founded the Modern Loss website, which provides support for those who are grieving, and explores grief in all its forms. We had a fascinating conversation that was not even remotely a bummer, despite the heavy subject matter, so do listen in, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.

    Another vote for being timely; loss is pending. It will be a matter of days, we are guessing. Already grieving.

    Interesting podcast, Ladies. Grief is a fascinating subject and one that is always with us. Interestingly, there’s an interview with actress, Sissy Spacek in today’s Guardian in which she talks about how grief informed her acting. For those of us who aren’t on Facebook would y’all mind sharing the name or Instagram info on the woman stylist y’all mentioned? I think her first name began with an “A” or something?

    CW, it’s Aja Barber. I love her. She’s had some serious posts recently, but her style is really fun and fun to watch.

      I love Aja Barber! Her Patreon and newsletter are also great. I haven’t listened to the podcast yet, but I appreciated the Modern Loss website, particularly the article on what to say/not to say to people who have had a pregnancy loss or stillbirth. (Top of the STFU list “Everything happens for a reason.” What people mean, without knowing it, is “Everything happens for a reason to you. I’m not you, so I won’t face this agony.” It’s like a spell to keep the speaker safe, but it hurts the hearer, who hears the deeper meaning.)

    This could not be more timely for me. I’m approaching one year since my mom’s death and not doing well. We were extremely close and I was her primary caregiver. Although I’ve known all along there’s no timeline for grief, people want you to believe there is, and hearing this discussion helped put that idea to rest once and for all. I’ll be availing myself of Rebecca’s content immediately. THANK YOU!

    What a powerful delivery Rebecca Soffer makes in this podcast. You can feel her pain, her strength, and her true intention to help others. This was an excellent interview. I’ve been grieving the loss of my dad for 21 years (he died unexpectedly during surgery), and the loss of my mother for the past 4 1/2 years (she was 92 and died of breast cancer). Both losses have changed me permanently (and not in a good way). The nervous, stupid things people say to you are unbearable even when you know their intentions are good. My heart goes out to Rebecca Soffer and Kim for losing parents early in life. Thank you for this podcast episode. It was insightful and helpful.
