Helping is healing. That’s the biggest lesson I’ve learned from creating The Grief Journal. It’s healing to help others navigate their grief. That’s what writing did for me. It helped me navigate the toughest time in my life by allowing me a space to express my feelings.
The truth is, there are tons of people out there missing their fathers on Father’s Day. Some have also lost their fathers to cancer, some have absent fathers, and some are wishing they could be fathers. If you’re dreading Father’s Day, I want to share some ways to handle the day, especially during a year already overflowing with grief and anxiety.
My mission for The Grief Journal was and still is to create a resource so impactful that people who are suffering no longer feel they have no place to turn. Journaling was a place of solace for me and I believe it can help others through their emotions too. I also believe hearing others’ stories will help those grieving realize they aren’t alone. Please remember, you are not alone.
