Group active since Mon, Mar 21, 2011
Welcome to Angels!
A group for people who have experienced loss of ANY kind. I believe in the power of people listening to each other. I believe in the importance of people supporting each other as they take each step on their individual journey through grief. I believe in each of us finding our own path. Sharing experiences which may shed light upon our own.
What can this group do? Provide a safe environment where we can say what we feel without worry of repercussions. A community of kindred spirits. A place to cry without apologizing. A place to laugh because we need to. A place to be angry or sad without recriminations. Let us say what we need to say. Not judge us for what it is that we do say.
Why did I start this group? Because I have lost a child, and as I get to know more people on justapinch.com, I have found that there are many who have had similar losses.
Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one, and this type of loss does often cause the most intense grief. However, any loss can cause grief: loss of a child or parent, a miscarriage, a loved one’s serious illness, a relationship breakup, loss of a friendship, and death of a pet.
There is no one who can understand your situation better than someone who is going through or has already gone through it. There is only so much one person can cope with alone, and if this is going to be a long journey, then it is nice to have some company on the road! This is YOUR group. Remember that no pain is too small. Talk about anything you wish. There are no restrictions here. God bless!
