How to Find Helpful People When Grieving

NOT BELONGING ANYMORE

Helping Others Understand the Loneliness of Grief

Loss and loneliness often go together

“People say they know what I’m going through. No, they don’t. They can’t,” Carter said.

Grief is lonely. No one knows exactly how you feel. It was your relationship and your loss – yours alone.

Multiple losses: How to Cope with Loss & Change

I Guess I Expected Grief to be Easier

I must be dumb. I keep expecting life to be smooth, even when I’m grieving.

Christmas In Heaven

How do they celebrate Christmas in heaven?

Do the angels sing in harmony

Is there such a thing as a Christmas tree

I wonder do you think of me

On this most special day?

The things we bought the food we ate

The excitement with which we'd wait

For this most special day.

Now I must spend it on my own
