“It really is about trusting yourself. Trusting your kids. Absolutely get professional help. Get community around you. Whittle down your life to the most essential components if you can. Insulate yourself in a way that prioritizes your time, prioritizes your healing. I think those are the things that I’ve taken most away from this. Be authentic, be kind to yourself, give yourself a lot of grace.”
~ Writer & widowed parent Jeanette Koncikowski on re-partnering after loss
I had a great discussion with Jeanette Koncikowski for this episode. Jeanette is a writer and is a widowed parent. She is writing the book she wishes she had when her husband died. Jeanette and I had a great discussion on a variety of topics:
One more thing – Jeanette is still looking to conduct interviews for her book with a few more widowed dads and widowed LGBTQ parents. If that’s you and you’d like to help, please head over the show notes to find out how to get in touch with Jeanette.
I hope you enjoy my discussion with Jeanette Koncikowski.
