I would love to know what you think, as I’m hoping to write a post giving all the advice I have collected over our various platforms!
Is it to hug you when you cry? To bring your person up in conversation? Or is it someone bringing you food or practically offering help to you that helps you?
Everyone knows grief exists, but they would prefer it to exist at the edge of society, between the people who experience it.
What excites you the most?
My advice would be to rest often and to try to enjoy myself a bit more.
96% of our Instagram poll audience said yes.
I cannot wait to be Evee in my new life, and for Katie to be Katie in hers. I am ready for it now.
I think as a young person who has lost their mum, I am quite tired of being scared of everything.
Remember how Mum would always say to break things down, and to not look at the bigger picture. The bigger picture is scary, and so is a year. 365 days seems inconceivable right now, but you can manage one day at a time. Stay in bed if you have to. You don’t have to leave the house, you just have to get through another day.
We never expected to feel so supported by your comments of encouragement or simple “me too” messages or a “hang on in there, it does get better”. Knowing other people were able to survive such loss gave me hope and shined a light on a future that I thought I’d never be able to attain after losing our mum.
