Sharing your story after cyberloss is important – here’s why

As I wrote on Tuesday, I recently had the pleasure of guest posting for Caleb Wilde. Writing the piece was cathartic, as sharing Chris’ story always is. Each time I share it, a new perspective starts to form, and I gain a fresh understanding.

There are certain parts I would rather hadn’t happened, of course. Talking about those is difficult, but important. Having an outlet is invaluable when facing any kind of loss, but with the loss of online friends, it becomes doubly important.

If you don’t feel able to talk about a cyberloss with friends, then there are other avenues you can explore. Art may be helpful, or writing perhaps. Sharing your story in whatever way you choose makes it universal, and hopefully more bearable, because you will open avenues that you can use to support yourself in the future.

Find something that suits you, and use it. If you’d like to, you can share what you’re doing to remember in the comments, or share your story there if it helps.

Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
