Episode 5 - Dealing with Grief Triggers

Do grief triggers always have to make me sad?

I have several grief triggers:

Food - ham and cheese sandwiches
Times of the year - the month of April
Heirlooms - a thermos and sofa

All of these remind me in one way or another, but do the all still make me sad.

While I can avoid eating certain foods, I can't stop April from coming every year, but I can use some things that have been passed down to me to remind me of good times I had with my father. Those items make me feel like my father is still with me, and that gives me strength.

Let me know what you think of today's episode:
