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."
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. 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 on each page.
