Please know this: you are not alone in your sorrow today. In fact, everyone you know, and every stranger on the street carries the sorrow left behind after losing someone dear to them. For some the grief they feel is very fresh and new. For others, it’s months or even years old. Yet, it’s there; proving the point: today you are not suffering alone.
Unfortunately, we know it can feel that way. You see, grief has a tendency to isolate us, removing us from those who can help us navigate through this dark time. Our growing collection of grief support articles and other grief resources can help you understand what you’re feeling–and give you some peace-of-mind.
The Nature and Purpose of Grief
Someone once said, "Grief is reaching out for someone who's always been there, only to find when you need them the most, one last time, they're gone." We think there is a lot of truth in those words.
The Experience of Grieving
Everyone experiences grief differently and while all ways are valid, it's important to realize the commonalities we share in the bereavement experience.
Helping Yourself Heal
