Learning Lessons from Grief, Coping with Loss, and Managing Stress – Ep. 117 with Lori Tucker-Sullivan
Grief is an impossible emotion to avoid. Throughout life, we may often find ourselves in moments of loss, no longer having a person whom we’d never imagined this journey without. While the pain of mourning is undeniable, the loss of a loved one does not have to halt your destiny and growth forever.
Today we speak with Lori Tucker-Sullivan. Lori is an author whose writings have appeared in a number of world-renowned publications including the Washington Post, Motherwell, and The Sun. She holds a BA in Communications and Journalism from the University of Michigan and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Spalding University.
Her Pushcart Prize-nominated essay “Detroit, 2015” told the story of her decision to move back to the city following her husband’s death. Following her own encounter with losing a life partner, Lori pursued a project titled “I Can’t Remember if I Cried”; a book profiling the widows of famous rock and roll stars, slated for release in 2023.
Lori shares her own story, as well as the countless gems she’s gathered through her process of speaking with other widows. Truly an insightful, motivating conversation!
