There are many great blogs on grief, loss, and trauma out there. Here are just a few we enjoy!
The Better Not Bitter Widower blog is written by John Polo, author and Hope & Empowerment Coach. In the blog John shares his story and lessons he’s learned. Here is a bit of John’s story, from his website.
“I met Michelle as a teenager, and we fell in love. Eight years after our High School romance, we reunited and planned to spend the rest of our lives together, alongside her amazing daughter.
Two short years after being reunited with the only woman I had ever loved, she was diagnosed with an extremely rare cancer. She passed away two and a half years later. Michelle was thirty years old. Through all of the tragedy and devastation that occurred, somehow, I was able to find a better version of myself.
As I picked up the pieces of my broken heart and devastated soul, something amazing happened. I discovered a deep passion for writing and speaking about love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment and hope. My goal is to help others both honor their pain and see that a hopeful tomorrow can indeed exist.”
