all things journaling
Hello to the newly bereaved. I'm sorry to meet you here in the place where loved ones leave you — a place where no one wants to be. If this is your first time here, you may find it darker, foggier, and more frightening than you expected. If you've been here before, you'll probably notice that things look different than you remember. That's the nature of this place. It's always changing, depending on who you're saying goodbye to. #grief #griefandloss #griefsupport #bereaved #newlybereaved
We received a question today from a WYG reader: her birthday is next week and she will be turning the age that her husband was when he died. This is bringing up new feelings for her and she is looking for thoughts, ideas, suggestions, experiences, or anything else that might help! We thought we would reach out to our wonderful community here to see what you all think. Anyone relate? Have thoughts? Ideas of suggestions about coping with the day? General words of support? #whatsyourgriefadvice
