Grief re-writes your address book. Sometimes the people you think will be there for you aren’t. It can be easy to just hole-up in your house feeling angry and bitter that your friends aren’t there for you the way you thought they’d be. It can be even easier to feel like you will never connect with people in the same way again, no one will ever understand your loss, and you will live on your own little grief island forever.
When you lose a loved one you become part of this tragic little club that you never wanted to be a part of. But, if you can open yourself up to talking to some other members of this club you may just find yourself a grief friend – someone you can connect with, who can support you, who you can support, all without judgement. It may be someone at work, church, school, online, in a grief support group, or at the dog park; grief friends turn up where you least expect them. In this episode of the What's Your Grief Podcast, Litsa and Eleanor discuss the awesomeness of having grief friends.
