Your Grief - Your Way
Ok, so this all started because I came across a video on that dreaded app TikTok.
A guy voicing his opinion on how it was disgusting and sickening to see people post about their deceased pets. I have seen some of the videos he is talking about… at the vet, their last visit, photos or video of them after they have passed… I’ve done one myself!
But Dude, they are MEMORIALS to their pets.
So I gave back my thoughts… in video form.
Society has never taught us the right way, the correct way to grieve when we have lost someone we love. They give us a PALATABLE way to grieve.
It has taught us to cry behind closed doors, to hide our sadness, to suppress our feelings. To say, I’m fine, I’m ok.
Well, NO MORE MY FRIENDS!!
If you want to memorialise your pet on a social media platform, I say you do it!
You grieve the way YOU WANT TO, anyway you NEED to (disclaimer: as long as you do not hurt yourself of others). If you want a funeral or service, you do that!
Shout it from the rooftops : MY PET DIED AND I AM SAD AND I MISS HIM AND I KNOW YOU CANT MAKE IT BETTER.,., BUT I JUST WANT TO BE HEARD AND SEEN. THATS ALL I REALLY WANT RIGHT NOW!
You grieve the way you want. It’s your grief, your way!
By the way, there is a book titled “ Your Grief, Your Way” by the amazing author Shelby Forsythia, Intuitive Grief Guide
