We have found some videos that might be helpful for you (including some we have created ourselves). They are not designed to “fix” you, but offer you some things to think about, possibly an opportunity to consider a different way of looking at things if that’s what you need, or just some uplifting moments if you need a break from the world you’re in right now.
Please remember that nothing is a ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to grief and what appeals or is helpful to one person may be difficult for others to watch – where something may have very obvious triggers for some, we have outlined this in the video description.
We hope there is something in here that you can take away to use in your own life and your own circumstances. If you have any videos that you think might be helpful for others, please feel free to send the details to us here to be considered for addition to the page.
