Most of you are grieving, so I don't have to tell you. You already know one of the saddest things about life after loss is that, with time, sensory memories like the sound of a loved one's voice, the smell of their clothes, or the feel of their arms wrapped around you start to fade.  #grief #memory #griefmemory #sensorymemory #griefandloss #secondaryloss  via @whatsyourgrief Anticipatory Grief, Memorial Gardens, Memories Faded, Child Loss, Trd, New Things To Learn, Your Voice, Finding Joy, Over Dose

I Miss the Sound of Your Voice: Grieving Sensory Memory

One of the saddest things about life after loss is sensory memory, things like the sound of a loved one's voice and smell of their clothes, start to fade

There are a lot of phrases that piss off people grieving, but perhaps none so much as “I know just how you feel”. Ask someone grieving to list the most annoying things people said to them in their grief. I promise this will often be near the top of the list. It is often coupled closely with the similar, “oh this reminds me of when (insert their experience here)". You would think people want empathy in grief, yet this common phrase doesn't seem to do it. But why? Wha...  via @whatsyourgrief How I Feel, How Are You Feeling, Complicated Grief, Grieving Friend, Sympathy Messages, Annoying Things, Life Hacking, Common Phrases, Grief Support

I'm Grieving and You Don't Know "Just How I Feel" - Whats your Grief

There are quite a few misguided phrases that grieving people find upsetting, but perhaps none so much as "I know how you feel."

Mary Poppins Returns Gets Grief Right - Whats your Grief

[Disney] On the morning that Mary Poppins floats into the Banks’ life, it seems like everything is about to go to hell in a handbag, or a carpet bag rather. Twenty-five years have passed since Mary Poppins first visited the Banks’ family in the 1964 movie. Michael Banks is […]

Grieving Who I Used To Be - Whats your Grief

As common as the term ‘new normal’ is among those grieving, I am always shocked how many people email or message us asking ‘how long until I feel normal again’. Other variations are something like ‘my family thinks I should be back to normal by now, but I […]

How to Cope When it Seems Like Everyone Wants to Forget - Whats your Grief

I recently read a quote from grief researcher and theorist Kenneth Doka that said: “All grief becomes disenfranchised over time.” I actually read this off a PowerPoint slide that I randomly stumbled upon on the Internet, so I don’t have much context, but I think I understand his […]

Whats your Grief - WYG's Definition of Grief

We’ve written extensively about grief over the years. We’ve expanded and clarified; we’ve waxed poetic; and, yes, perhaps we’ve even pontificated a little on the subject. Though our hope is always to explain and simplify, I sometimes worry that with 555 articles averaging around 1,000 words apiece we’ve […]

What does it mean to be strong in grief?  I think a good majority of people would believe that strength in the face of overwhelming emotion means being resistant. But strength in the context of grief is actually far different than most accepted definitions. It's brave as hell, but it feels like the opposite.  #grief #griefandloss #griefsupport #strongingrief #resillience #emotionalstrength #emotionalintelligence #griefcoping #coping via @whatsyourgrief Sympathy Messages, Emotional Strength, Grief Support, Getting Out Of Bed, Trd, It's Meant To Be, Thoughts And Feelings, Emotional Intelligence, Vulnerability

A Grief Intensified. A Grief Sidelined. A Grief Forgotten. - Whats your Grief

Like so many things in life, grief is both an internal and external event. Our internal experience of loss is constantly interfacing with the external world around us. Before the world changed several months ago, this might have meant a good day derailed by an intense reminder. It […]

Guilt and Grief: Making A Living Amends - Whats your Grief

It would be easy to think there is nothing more WYG can write about guilt and grief. We’ve written about how common guilt is in grief (you wouldn’t believe how many people get the “coulda woulda shouldas”). We wrote an article about the difference between guilt and regret. […]

Rethinking Acceptance in Grief: a love/hate story

I can’t remember when I first heard about the five stages of grief. But, I do know it must have happened sometime between age seven and age twelve. I was not one of those kids who made it to adulthood without death shattering their world. So, though I […]

Written and shared with us by our grief-friend, Cara Jeanne. Sharing with all of you, because we have a feeling many of you will relate. “She’ll always be with you.” “You’ll know she’s there.” “She’ll never really leave.” These are the very kind and infuriating things people have […]

What the Newly Bereaved Should Know

Hello to the newly bereaved. I'm sorry to meet you here in the place where loved ones leave you — a place where no one wants to be. If this is your first time here, you may find it darker, foggier, and more frightening than you expected. If you've been here before, you'll probably notice that things look different than you remember. That's the nature of this place. It's always changing, depending on who you're saying goodbye to. #grief #griefandloss #griefsupport #bereaved #newlybereaved
