1. Introduction

This managed to almost slip past us this year. But as we have become aware, we couldn’t do a topic on it.

Grief is a journey my sister and I have been on since March 2017. It has been nothing like any loss we have ever known or experienced in our whole life.

Words cannot really explain the way this loss has changed us forever and we will never be the same again. It is a learning journey; we are yet to discover the people we are changing into. We move through this journey day to day moment to moment, trying our very best to take care of ourself and eachother.

Amongst all the matters that we would like to create awareness of, grief is most certainly one of them. It can be deemed as such a taboo subject, one of which can be difficult to talk about. Encouraging people to talk about and share their grief and feelings with others is something that we feel is important.

Having a support system and having people who you feel comfortable talking to through times like this makes all the difference and is really beneficial for mental health and wellbeing.

For ourselves, this has come at a time where we are experiencing a low in our journey. A low where it is hard to know exactly what might be wrong. It’s a feeling that is hanging over us daily and the only thing that is helping us to feel better is messages from friends and family, these things make us happy, also the wonderful support that we get within this community of others who are also on their grief journey.

5. Our Final thoughts/YouTube Video

We are living through very different and trying times worldwide due to this current pandemic. Add to that, everyday matters, such as grief and that adds a whole new factor.

Even this new way of life, it can feel like a loss of what we once knew, that can be quite tough. In each situation that life puts our way, whether good or bad, as individuals we need to do what is right for ourselves in order to push through each new day, and live life as best as possible.

We hope this topic has been of use to someone.
