If you are supporting a griever...

If you are a grief-support or grief-curious person, welcome. And thank you. Thank you for being here. Please keep reading before scrolling down.

If you care about someone who is grieving, thank you for opening your heart up to understanding our experience, before you really need to. Thank you for being willing to learn about and see the things most people try to ignore until that is no longer possible. We appreciate and love you. We might not always be able to say so and we may struggle to see outside our own narrow grief-lens for a good, long time. But we thank you all the same.

We get it. Bearing witness to profound grief is uncomfortable. You want us to go back to who we were before our loss. You want the old, carefree, happy, supportive, naïve version of us.

But the greatest gift you can give us is simply to let us freely become who we are meant to become through our grief. Let us be messy. Let us take time. Let us find our own way.

Try not to tell us how to grieve or how to put our life back together. Try not to expect what you used to expect from us.

Profound loss isn’t a year-long journey. It isn’t a two-year-long journey. It is an entire lifetime of change and growth. It is a trajectory forever altered.

Many of us already feel guilty that we are no longer able to be who we were before. Maybe, instead of pressuring us to return to who we were, you can celebrate our journey, however uncomfortable.

Check out the free downloadable resources & guides below, and allow me to teach you a little bit more about grief, so you can support the people you care about.

A grief-literate society is a healthy society.

The Top Five Grief Myths

We live in a society where grief myths abound. I know because I used to believe many of them. I was completely unaware of the reality of grief, which means I was wholly unprepared for what it was really like. It also means that everyone around me was too. Grief is hard enough as it is, let’s shift the narrative by starting to break down these widely believed misunderstandings. 

This resource is helpful for both grievers and grief support people alike.

But What Do I Say?

Simple Tips to Support Grievers (Coming soon)

Do you worry about saying the wrong thing to the grieving people in your life? I get it. Grief is uncomfortable. And none of us have been taught what it’s actually like or what grieving people actually need. As a grief support person, you likely don't want to make things worse. The last thing you want is to cause even more pain. Here are some simple tips for what to say and how to offer grief-literate support.

If you are a griever, feel free to download this resource and share it with the support people in your life.

COMING SOON

Walking with Grief Challenge

(Coming again autumn 2023)

As the last leaves fell off the trees in that late autumn of 2022, I impulsively asked on instagram stories: "Who wants to do a 30-day walking with grief challenge with me?" The response was phenomenal. Hundreds of grievers began walking daily and supporting one another online, sharing photos, podcast episodes, and encouragement. Stay tuned for the next walking challenge. Sign up here to be notified when we start again!
