Whenever I'm in the midst of loss and grief I search for anything and everything to help me help myself. Books, articles, podcasts, therapists, movies, shamans - all the good shit that can help me find the light. Below are some blogs to help you through.
MODERN LOSS BY REBECCA SOFFER AND GABRIELLE BIRKNER
Modern Loss was one of the first blogs I found that actually resonated with me and my experience of loss.
This site is a place to share the unspeakably taboo, unbelievably hilarious, and unexpectedly beautiful terrain of navigating your life after a death. Beginners welcome.
This project grew out of two friends’ separate experiences with sudden loss, and their struggle to find resources that weren’t too clinical, overtly religious, patronizing or, frankly, cheesy.
Letting the love in. because. "It's AN Honour to help you" blogPost by Danielle Laporte
A fellow Vancouverite, Danielle LaPorte is the queen of straight-up and soulful self-help. An author and general whiz with words, she has a variety of books that will help you find your joy. I particularly love this blogpost as it addresses a topic that's so hard for so many during shitty times...asking for help. You can also sign up for her daily #truthbombs here (very helpful reminders).
REFUGE IN GRIEF BY MEGAN DEVINE
If your life has exploded into a million little bits, you don't need platitudes. You don't need cheerleading. Most of what passes for grief support is less than useful.
Megan created Refuge in Grief to tell the truth about grief, with no sugar coating. She created it to give you support that actually sounds like you - something that speaks to your life, your mind, your heart.
