Sean Rodgers: Men Cry Too

June 30, 2020

Have you ever dealt with the loss of a loved one? Has it changed you drastically? Has it altered your life completely? In today’s episode of the Redefining Grief podcast, we have Sean Rodgers with us who walks us through his grief journey and how it has changed his life forever.

Sean tells us about how losing his grandfather, who was the primary father figure that he had in life, changed his life forever. He talks about his struggle with grief, how he was unable to process his emotions and how that was messing with his life throughout until he finally stopped and realized that it’s okay to cry, it’s okay to hurt and that grief is indeed, okay to feel. Sean is doing great things today, helping people find their path to purpose and he credits is all back to the realization that dawned upon his while he was grieving.
