Andrew Garfield, Grief & The Holiday Season *EXPERT OPINION*

 Andrew Garfield, Grief & The Holiday Season *EXPERT OPINION*

In The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Andrew Garfield got visibly emotional when describing the loss of his mother and the grief he still feels.

 

He said “I hope this grief stays with me because it’s all the unexpressed love that I didn’t get to tell her…and I told her every day” 

A truly beautiful sentiment to describe the grief and a healthy one too, which doesn’t try to suppress or deny any kind of emotions. 

As the holidays fast approach us, many people will be struggling with not having a loved one around. Holidays can be extremely triggering and what are meant to be happy times can bring back memories and crystallise feelings of grief and loss which may have been dormant. 

How can people manage their feelings of stress, anxiety and grief around the holidays in a healthy way?
