YOURSPACE:
WORDS OF SORROW

TELL YOUR OWN GRIEF STORY




"Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o'er-wrought heart and bids it break."

     ~William Shakespeare
          (From MacBeth)

Words of sorrow...

Why write? Because it 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.

You can access grief stories left by others below the submission forms on each page.


CHANGE IS COMING...
     To Recover-From-Grief.com.


We are going to transition soon from these "Yourspace" blog pages to a true Forum. You will have the ability to not only post about your loss and leave comments on other's posts; the new improved Forum will also include chat rooms and private messaging!

A chat room is where multiple guests can all discuss or comment on the same subject, in real-time! (Kinda like an online written "conference call").

Private messaging will be great for those of you who have requested contact information about other guests (which we were not allowed to give out). If you feel a "connection" to someone else in the forum, you can send private messages back and forth, if both of you agree to it.

The new improved "participation" section of this website will be called The Grief Club. Not only will you have access to the bright new Grief Forum, membership in the Club will bring you access to a bi-monthly grief e-zine/newsletter ("Just Breathe"), great discounts on other grief resources, and of course the popular Pearls from the Forums.

Why did we do this?

The Yourspace pages are always very active; however, it is also a prime target for multiple spammers and "spellcasters" from around the globe. And boy are they sneaky! They make posts that appear normal, but somewhere lower in the post, they would slip in their spammy messages. We spend literally hours each day carefully combing through every post to weed them out.

A sign-in Forum should eliminate the problem. We also believe it will be a better experience for YOU in many ways.

So watch for The Grief Club, coming soon. There will be no cost for lifetime membership initially, so we encourage you to sign up as soon as membership opens up.
