YOURSPACE: WORDS OF SORROW
Words of sorrow...
TELL YOUR STORY OF GRIEF
"Give sorrow words; the grief that
does not speak knits up the o'er-wrought heart and bids it break."
-- William Shakespeare (MacBeth)
Why? Because writing feels good. This is probably the most basic and simple
method of creative grieving. Experts all agree that expressing your grief is
essential to a healthy mourning process.
Think of your grief page as a "mini-myspace". Tell us what happened, and how you
feel about your own personal tragedy. Express your words of sorrow; it will be
therapeutic in the long run. We have provided here a "soft place" for you to
land, a sympathetic ear willing to listen and not judge.
Feel free to write whatever you want to. Express your fears, anger, sorrow and
loneliness. Post a picture of your lost one, or a photo of you together. Tell us
a little bit about them, and what happened to them.
But this page is really for YOU to ventilate, not
to post a memorial to THEM.
(You can post a full memorial page, dedicated to them and their life, in
THEIRSPACE if you want to).
Alternatively, you can remain totally anonymous if you wish. Change all the
names. It doesn't matter. Just so you get your words of sorrow "down on paper".
Let it all out.
Come back later and read the comments left by visitors to your page, and see how
you felt "back then".
Share your story with others! It will help in coping with your loss. It will
also help others to know that they are not alone in their pain. Helping others,
even in a small way, helps you. Please feel free to leave a
comment if you feel the need or have a thought you think might help someone in
grief. Thanks for participating in our Yourspace pages.
And if you find comfort here, you may just treasure
The Grief Club!
You can access grief stories left by others
below the submission forms.
VERY IMPORTANT TIPS BEFORE YOU POST.
A MUST READ:
1. When you post ANYTHING ON THIS WEBSITE, it becomes available via websearch (Googling)
to the whole world!!! Do not use your real name if you don't want it out there.
2. Compose your post totally offline beforehand. Use a simple word processor
like Notepad. Then copy and paste the whole thing into the Yourspace submission
box. This prevents you losing all your hard work.
3. All original posts (not comments) must consist of at least 2-3
paragraphs, or they will be immediately rejected. Search engines penalize
websites for short pages.
4. If you want to continue your story after submission, please add to the
original post thru the comments box instead of making multiple submissions.
5. We will immediately reject any submissions that are mean spirited, vulgar,
use foul language or specify any nurse, doctor, hospital, hospice, or people
accused of crimes, by name.
6. Texting language is great! For cellphones. Please use full words and keep
text language to a minimum.
7. Your post does NOT automatically appear after you submit it, like some
forums. There is a time lag of from 2-24 hours until you will see it online.
Please don't submit it multiple times!
*If you still don't see your story, try refreshing the cache on your computer.
Here's how: Hold down the CTRL button while you hit the F5 button at the top.
This updates the page for you.
