Today my guest is Bryan Martin, aka Sea Lion Bryan, who is an animal care and training specialist, widower, and fantastic dancer who can be found on TikTok and Instagram @sealionbryan
We talked about:
- Being with his partner Clayton for four years. After Bryan’s dad passed away, four months later Clayton got a fungal infection and he had an adverse response to the medication that cause acute liver failure. He became Clayton’s caregiver for the following 8 months until he passed away.
- It wasn’t until 2020 when Bryan noticed how many people were grieving that he felt it was time to share with more people online.
- Clayton’s wild sense of humor, how it still informs Bryan’s own humor, and why dead husband jokes are funny
- Why Deadpool is the patron saint of widows
- Being ghosted on a date after being literally ghosted by your partner
- Widows laugh because the world is ridiculous
- The weird connotation widow/er has (it make it sound like we did it)
- If you’ve used comedy to cope in other areas of your life, you’ll probably use it to cope with grief too
- Using reverse psychology on the universe to get what you want
- The difference between positivity and toxic positivity (something Bryan has been accused of)
- The beauty of authenticity
- We don’t talk about preparing for death enough because of shame and fear
