Your Story

Tell us your story about loss

Perhaps your loss is recent. Maybe you’re twelve months on and facing the year of firsts. The first Christmas or first wedding anniversary without your loved one. Or on the contrary, perhaps its been several years since your loved one’s passing, and only now you see grief for what it was.

We invite you to share your story with us. But importantly,  tell us how you found the strength to face each day and where the courage to process your grief came from.

With your stories, we aim to help reduce the number of people who slip into complicated grief after losing a loved one.

Reading about someone else’s feelings, experiences and emotions is a powerful healer.

We look forward to reading your story*.
