I don't know about you, but by the time I reached my fifties, I was an absolute MASTER at feeling guilty and being sad about what I'd lost and would never have again (think: cuddles from a little child, the family all being together, pizza nights in front of the TV, school runs, that kind of thing)
(okay, maybe not the school runs).
It's such a difficult trap to get out of, but it's made MUCH easier when you recognise what's happening; if you don't know that the reason you're short tempered is that you're sad because your child's visit is nearly over, then how can you move beyond it?
In this podcast, I go through the things that I've done (and hopefully you can do, if you're inclined) to let go of the guilt and embrace the grief (yes, embracing it makes it disappear so much faster!).
