You are not alone


‘You Are Not Alone’ doesn’t offer you an exit, just suggestions on how to navigate grief. To help you as you learn grief’s brutal but beautiful lesson; that grief will change and grow and diminish and reappear, it will be with you forever, you will learn to build a life around it, to carry it. It will be OK, you will be OK. Somehow, you will be. You are not alone. Cariad was just 15 years old when her father died. At the time, death was still a taboo, and grief even more so. No one was talking about what it really felt like, the tears, the laughter, the pain – the truth of grief. Years later, she found she needed a place where she could finally be honest about this strange human emotion, so she created the Griefcast podcast, starting a conversation about one of the most significant moments of all our lives: the end.
