Y&R star helps others deals with emotions.

Share Your Feelings

The holidays are joyous for most, but the pace can be disheartening for those who have lost a loved one. Being married to famed counselor John W. James, co-author of the Grief Recovery Handbook, The Young and the Restless's Jess Walton (Jill) has acquired a few words of guidance on mastering the stress of the season.

"Realize that your feelings are all right and nobody can tell you what's inappropriate about them," she stresses. "Acknowledge them and get it out."

The sentiment is an inspiration to Walton, who taps in to deal with the loss of her own father. "If I think of a wonderful time I had with him and I never got to tell him that, I say, 'Thank you, Daddy. I loved it.' It keeps the connection alive."

Walton encourages those who may be having a hard time handling their emotions to seek assistance at Grief Recovery. "The number is (800) 334-7606, or you can get information at grief.net," she shares. "It's so important to have this information at this time of year."

“Me the mother from hell? Oh honey…I have to tell you, everything I do is with the best intentions,” Darbo laughs. “I’m a mother and I would do anything for my daughter. It’s like the ying and yang. We may go back and forth, but I am a loving mom and full of good intentions. I am all heart.”

Darbo has been back now a few weeks and she has a purpose and that is to make someone’s life a living hell. Her daughter Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) has a son and wants to get back with the baby’s father. The problem?
