Honouring those at Stage I - Denial

Yesterday's post broke all records.

I have received so many comments, calls, emails and SMS messages from family, friends and strangers from all over the world. It has completely overwhelmed me.

It also made me realise that the sensitive subjects of grief and infertility has struck a chord with a number of people for a myriad of reasons.

As a result of all this, I want to dedicate the next five days to support and honour those who are at different stages in their grieving process.

If you are grieving, or have grieved, I invite you to express yourself and share as much or as little of your story about your first stage - Denial (remember you can preserve your anonymity and post as a guest).

The purpose of this is not about dwelling in grief, but to help those that are in the midst of it to move through the five stages. It's about opening up a conversation, extending a hand, heart, shoulder and ear. It's about letting them know they're not alone. It's about hope.

Until tomorrow, help our friends move through to stage two.

PS. I extend my hand in friendship and support to those who are grieving no matter what the cause. If you are moved to say something, please do.

  1. Hi Grace,

  2. Grief comes to us at any time and without warning.

    From our first lost toy to the loss of a beautiful dream, it is catastrophic, heart breaking. grief is a world inverting sense of loss who's effect in our life is proportional its perceived magnitude.

    But we survive, learn and grow. We can use that learning to be, for ourselves and others, more than we could have been otherwise.

    In a way, it is a gift. A chance to reconsider our preconceptions, to remake ourselves and the world around us.

    When you find your life darkened by grief, know that acceptance is the first step to your bright new world.
