It’s the only version of social media I can handle these last few months. WL&F is a safe place where everyone is understanding and supportive without judgement. I felt completely alone before I found this and anything to feel a little less lost is all I can ask for these days. Thank you so much for creating this outlet.
Widow, East Coast
Finding a group of people who are going through what I'm going through has helped me so much. These people are so kind and became a big part of my life since the day I joined WL&F. It's a safe place to talk and judgement is never placed. I'm so thankful for this group.
Putting into words how WL&F has impacted me is very hard because it is like asking how a tree impacts one's life. I live my day to day for good or bad, but because of the existence of trees (WL&F) I am able to breathe, to see the beauty in the sadness which has now become my reality. Seeing each branch on the tree representing a widow, widower, or griever who provides shade and refuge from the weather is comforting. I hope that I have provided a little bit of that same comfort to someone because this lost world we have found ourselves in would be uninhabitable without the trees.
Widows Lost & Found has helped me feel less alone in my grieving. Although I'm not legally a widow, I feel completely accepted and welcomed.
Finding WL&F after suddenly losing my husband in Nov 2021 has helped me see that we all grieve differently and at our own pace, but we are all there for each other. Whether it be a supportive comment, a story, or simply something to make me smile or laugh when I need it most, I know I can come to this community: a community no one wants to join at any age, but a community that is always there for each other.
