Let’s talk about death.

Trigger Warning – Talking about Death & Grief & Cancer. 

Death – The end of someone’s life.

Death seems to be a taboo subject. It comes across as a scary and morbid word. 

Sometimes we have to face death earlier than we wanted. Sometimes we won’t come across death until we are older. Sometimes we are faced with losing someone at a very young age. 

Death can be peaceful. Death can be bloody scary. Death can be sudden and unexpected. Death can be expected. Death can be cruel. 

Death can be a lot of things which we can discuss on here. 

We need to be able to talk about grief and death when someone who we love or someone who is close to us has passed away. Whether it’s a parent or a pet. Grief is a grief. If you grieve it doesn’t mean you’re weak. YOU ARE NOT WEAK! 

Grief can trigger your mental health to decline. 

Grief can trigger addiction. 

Grief can trigger anything. 

I think my mental health declined because of grief. But who knows. 

I did a post about grief so please check it out 🙂 – It’s the memories that mean the most

So I want to let you into my grief journey what I’ve had to face.

  • I first got introduced to death when I was 9. My great granddad George died. He was 93. He died of some sort of cancer. 
  • Then a couple of months after my Mum who was called Georgina died of cancer when I was 9. 
  • Then I had a pet rabbit for my 11th birthday called Mittens and she died when I was 15.

So, I want to talk about grief on my blog as it’s been a big thing in my life and I’m still in the grieving journey. I want to help young people who are facing loss. As when I was in that situation at 9 years old. I felt like I had no one. I want to help everyone. I want it to be raw and honest as I want to show awareness. 

So, I hope you can come on the journey with me! (I will also be writing a page of support numbers what can help you if you are experiencing bereavement, It will be on my blog tomorrow!) 

Till next time folks! 
Love Ya
