During the episode, the OWN Network owner asks the best questions that get right to the heart of the matter. "That struck me, the brutality of loss," Winfrey expressed to Sandberg, according to Essence's exclusive first look. "How are you learning to breathe again?" she asked.
"I'm learning to let the grief come when it comes, to lean into the suck," Sandberg revealed. "We get upset that we are upset. I get angry that I'm angry. I settled into the feeling and it began to pass more quickly."
The discussion is a moving reminder that all of our emotions are valid.
