Welcome to What’s Your Grief 101. Today’s post is a bit of a guide, a place to start here at WYG. For those of you who have been hanging out with us for a while, these may be familiar old favs, or classics you didn’t even realize you’d missed. For those new to WYG, these are the posts that will give you a taste for what we are about and somewhere to begin. This is not a best-of list, but rather articles that lay a foundation. If you are looking to refer a new griever to WYG, this may be a good place to tell them to start. If you have just found or been referred to us, we hope this helps you dip your toes in the water.
Before you dive in we want to take a moment to say how glad we are that you found us. If you have been a long-term grief friend, we appreciate that you stuck around; we’re flattered you subscribed; we’re over the moon that you may have sent others our way. When we started this little corner of the internet we had no idea if anyone would read it, and we are amazed every day when our readership continues to grow. We also know, as our site fills with more and more articles, it can get more and more overwhelming when new people find us. Where do I start? What should I read first? Your ability to focus, concentrate and retain information is shot when you’re grieving and here you are on a website filled with hundreds of articles. Eeek.
So we hope the short-list below will help. Click on each image below to go to a different post. If you relate, leave a comment. If you have a question, ask. If you like it, share it. And if you love it, subscribe!
