I am so grateful to have been a part of Grief Stories as it has helped me so much in dealing with my mother’s death. I was so unsure of how I would feel about speaking about my grief regarding my mother’s death because we had a difficult relationship and I actually felt some relief when my mother passed and part of me felt shame for feeling that way. I feel that the experience has helped me to resolve many negative feelings I had towards my mother and has helped me to feel compassion and understanding of my mother’s experiences in her life which were not always easy.
Grief remains the taboo topic in our culture. We seem to be able to speak about any other topic but when it comes to grief, mourning and the expressions of such, silence becomes the norm. It is my professional opinion, Grief Stories is a huge step in not only addressing the silence but also giving people a practical, helpful and encouraging place to go to explore their own journey as well as listen to the hearts of others.
Grief hurts. Period. Connecting with others who are walking this similar yet unique path is especially healing. Over time, grief can strengthen your life. It is a process and the pain is a part of the healing. Moving forward from it vs. getting over it is the key to self-preservation and a positive grief experience. Yes, a positive grief experience.
