I hope this post finds you well. I’ve written before about the importance of sharing memories after cyberloss – and in this post I’m going to explore a few ways in which you can do that.
One excellent site I’ve found is GriefPost – they’re also in my blogroll to the right, but they’re worth considering again, because you can post anonymously and share anything you may be feeling without fear of attaching your name to it. (Although this site may be triggering in the early stages of grief)
I’m also an advocate of sharing memories within the community that those we’ve lost were a part of. Talk about them and tell their stories – that’s one way in which they can live on.
Another useful resource can be found at findagrave.com – although it is primarily a genealogy website, you can add a memorial to a departed person and leave virtual gifts and messages. For those of us who have experienced cyberloss, it’s a great resource to have.
Keeping memories alive is arguably the most important thing after cyberloss. As with any other type of loss, the way in which you do that is up to you. You may not want to share publicly about your experience, in which case a journal can be useful. (Before I began this blog, I wrote in a journal almost every night.)
What are your favourite ways of keeping their memory alive? Please feel free to share in the comments.
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
