Oprah Winfrey is back this Sunday with her Emmy-winning Super Soul Sunday series featuring a powerful interview with Sheryl Sandberg. We first met Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, as she lead the Lean In movement with her bestselling book to help women go further in our careers. Tragedy struck Sandberg’s life two years ago when her husband Dave Goldberg and father of their two kids died while they were on vacation. She opens up on growing from his passing in her new book Option B, and tells Oprah the steps she took to not be stuck in sadness.
“That struck me, the brutality of loss,” Winfrey says to Sandberg, while reading from Option B. "How are you learning to breathe again?”
Sandberg replies: “I’m learning to let the grief come when it comes, to lean into the suck. 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."
Great advice on giving ourselves the freedom to feel how we feel, and honor all our emotions. We are always here for a Super Soul dose from Auntie Oprah and this interview does not disappoint. If you don’t make it to church this Sunday, the Winfrey congregation is here for you.
Watch Sheryl Sandberg’s interview with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday this Sunday, June 25 at 11 a.m. ET on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
