** This episode openly deals with the topic of suicide. Please use your discretion if deciding to listen, and if you do feel triggered, please ensure you seek immediate support from friends, family or professional support, if required. However, it is my intention that this episode be an open discussion on how you can move through this incredibly distressing time in your life to healing and being able to view both your loved one and yourself in a different light.
