A Refuge in Grief

Whilst you don’t say, we hear you.

We have recently been inspired by a number of people we were familiar with, whom have either lost a close individual over the past year, or recently. We have been deeply moved.

As such we would like to dedicate this article post to those who are suffering and mourning their losses with deep and inconceivable pain, as well as the individuals who could no longer be with us now.

The holiday season is upon us and for some it’s the reason for celebration and cheer, but for others who are grieving, this is a period which may intensify feelings of loss and absence.

In a sea of pain, there is Refuge in Grief

We came upon this awesome website called Refuge in Grief by psychotherapist and writer, Megan Devine, who writes brilliantly and cleverly put together some material that helps either someone or someone you know to tide through this tough period. Hence, we decided to incorporate some links here, so that you may easily access her site.


It’s OK to not be OK.

If your life has exploded into a million little bits, you don’t need platitudes. You don’t need cheerleading. You don’t need to be told this all happened for a reason.

Some things cannot be fixed. They can only be carried.


We recommend an article we wrote a while ago on understanding and dealing with grief as featured in a local healthcare publication Sep-Oct 2016, Issue no. 65 of Lifewise. Here is the link to the article.
