It’s always hard to know what and when to do it. Our service gives you a step-by-step guide tailored to your specific location and situation. With helpful tools that simplify even the hardest tasks, and the human support you need at any time.
I lost my wife suddenly and unexpectedly to cancer just over a year ago. I still miss her every day, and I expect that I always will. But there is no doubt in my mind that she would want me to move on and enjoy what life has left for me now. It took a while—and there were days when I was so angry at her for leaving me that I didn’t know if I could forgive her or myself. Hugs & Words helped me to refocus and plan my healing.
First things first: don't let anyone tell you how to feel, and don't tell yourself how to feel either. Everyone's different, and everyone copes with loss in their own way. Give yourself space and time to process how you’re feeling. With the app, I was able to explore my own way of healing and follow my own path.
The service was exactly the support that I needed. It's a sad fact of life that many of us will need to deal with the death of someone we love, and so inevitably, we'll also need to learn how to cope with grief. But it isn't just the death of a loved one that can trigger grief; sometimes, we can begin grieving before they pass on at all.
Some of the support you need is emotional. The fears and feelings that surface now are better aired than ignored. Some of the support you need concerns practical details. Finding a service that helped me to overcome the most difficult emotional challenges was reliving.
