One of the most common words that widowed people use to describe how they feel after the death of their spouse is 'lonely'.
Even when we're surrounded by family and friends, the sense of loneliness and not quite 'fitting in' can be overwhelming. However connecting with other widowed people can make us feel heard, understood and validated.
The First Light online forum operates 24/7 and is hosted by Widowed Village, a program by Soaring Spirits International who are working with First Light to provide a forum for Australian widowed people to connect.
Our online forum is a safe space where widowed people can share their stories and connect with other widowed people close to their age, date of loss and geographical location, day or night from the comfort of their own homes.
Take a look, join a conversation, or share a photo…we look forward to meeting you.
