Finding Yourself After Sibling Loss and Living Life Fully
Play • 48 min

Life as we know it changes with death but when a sibling dies, the survivor often has to navigate these changes alone.    Society doesn't recognize their need to grieve and will often ask "how their parents are doing?" Leaving them feeling their grief isn't as important, they aren't supported in the same way.  

Often surviving siblings feel responsible for supporting their parents and doing all they can, and they push their grief aside. 

Sibling loss and grief is every bit real, please don't ignore them but ask how they are doing?

What helps is openly communicating and speaking about the death as a family. This creates comfort and connection for all.
