I break format here on the So Sorry For Your Loss podcast to respond to the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, Gianna "Gigi" Bryant, and seven others who were called to heaven way too soon. It was difficult to hear this news, and as someone who has experienced sudden loss, it triggered a lot of unpleasant memories. But even if you haven't had a significant loss in your life, the death of a celebrity is something that impacts us all.
Being a podcast about grief, I felt compelled to share my thoughts on why we all feel the loss of Kobe Bryant so deeply, how it can trigger dark emotions for some, and what you can do to move on from this emotional news.
