Grief Beyond Belief
Following up on yesterday’s posting, I’d like to clue in my fellow godless heathens to a great online resource for non-believers, atheists, and others on the undecided spectrum when it comes to dealing with grief issues.
Grief Beyond Belief is, in their own words:
“Grief Beyond Belief is an online support network for people grieving the death of a child, parent, partner, or other loved one — without belief in a higher power or any form of afterlife. Atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers and anyone else living without religious beliefs are invited to participate. If you are in the process of reevaluating or letting go of previously held religious beliefs, you may also join the community and seek support.”
It’s been 11 years since my Dad died and I still get verklempt from time to time, especially as the Hellions grow and I think of all the things he missed. Grief Beyond Belief is a safe space online for those of us who eschew an afterlife to deal with our losses in our own way. It’s a pretty friendly community, one of the nicest online communities I belong to.
That being said… anybody I know shows up there trolling? Getting unfriended is the least of your worries…
