    Forgiveness it's worth its weight in gold.  Here is the best part of my story. Here, after decades, I have now finally forgiven myself.   Forgiving others doesn’t always come easy. Forgiving myself was almost impossible mostly because I didn’t even know I was supposed to forgive myself.  “Holding onto anger/ resentment/a grudge is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. “ Shame and guilt were the poisons that I drank.  Forgiveness is the greatest gift I ever gave myself.

    Seth Hoffman: Grief Support Community Organizer | Orphan | Survive+Thrive | MSW | Elder Advocate | Writer | WFPB | NYC | Queer | Mindful | Lovingkindness | Grateful Seth says, "I lost my dad when I was 17 and my mom when I was 21. These losses sent me on a journey where I've fallen down and been picked up several times. And throughout these experiences, I always wanted to find people in my age group who could relate to me. So when I came upon this group in May of 2016 (when I was 24), I felt relieved when I went to a few meetings, and finally felt like people could relate to my experiences, especially through the context of young adulthood. This group has been one of the reasons I motivate myself to heal from and survive these losses. Being a young adult who loses a parent or both parents, makes this transitional stage of life harder to deal with. As young adults, we are facing new experiences that can shape the rest of our lives. Some of us are in school pursuing degrees. Some of us are working in the real-w

I was going through a lot of depression and anxiety, but everything changed when we had a baby girl come into our lives. One day, I was sitting in my wheelchair, and I saw my daughter playing on the floor. She was so happy and care-free. This fleeting moment in time stuck with me, and I knew that I had two choices

    Losing a brother you only recently came to know, is as raw for an amazing death shaman as it would be for anyone. Michele shares her story.  "Dignity is not negotiable. Dignity is the honor of the family." Death is a topic that most people prefer to avoid in everyday conversation. But for death shaman Michele Bell, it’s a daily centerpiece in her life journey, one whose stigma she’s working hard to remove by Illuminating the topic that is so often hushed.  "I encourage a sturdy voice in the midst of a society that is in fear of feeling." For Michele, tucking death into a closet that’s not meant to be opened isn’t an option. She believes that life is precious right up to the very last breath, and those whose lives we lost require compassion, emotional support, and spiritual guidance at a time when its most difficult for their loved ones to provide.  “As a society, we’re uncomfortable witnessing other people’s emotional pain, particularly as it relates to death,” she explains. “We tend to shy away from conv
