You suffered a loss, the loss of a child. It is a terrible place to be. I am so sorry that you are here. I am sorry that you are going through this. Your child may have recently passed away or it may have been years ago. The loss of a child is as deep as it gets. Grief is deep and aching when they are no longer with us. You may feel there is no consolation, not even believing that you will see them again removes the pain that your child is gone. I understand. I have been through all of this and more.
You will never get over your loss. You move through it.
In the past, resources to help with child loss have been limited. In my first loss in 1991, my only support came from my mother and sister. My second loss in 2018 was much different. In the time span of 27 years, I acquired many resources and tools that equipped me much better than the first time and navigate my loss. They were things I wish I knew the first time. I knew that others could learn from my experience. No one should have to walk this path alone.
This is why I decided to share my own journey as a loss traveler and equip others with the tools to help move through the loss of your child and guide you toward being happy again.
You have at least one person to live a full life for.
That person is you.
Do you feel there is no tomorrow? Not sure if you will make it through your loss? I know how you feel. After my son died, I decided to start journaling and posting my thoughts on Facebook. When I looked back at my journey, I saw the progress from deep despair to glimmers of hope and joy. Here is my first 365 days, unedited, real and raw.
