Modern Loss Helps You Deal

Screen Shot 2013-12-02 at 2.49.32 PM The holidays can get... emotional. Especially if you've suffered the loss of a loved one, as many of us have and all of us will at some point. We found a site, Modern Loss, that helps. The essays here are heartfelt, funny, tender and -- yes -- tear-jerking. They come from a relatable place. What you'll read and participate in is not preachy or cheesy or condescending. It's like hanging out with your friends, if your friends knew just what to say.

Sometimes it helps to hear others' stories of loss. Sometimes you wanna read some solid quotes about grief. Or get advice about how to handle things like crying in public. Want some tips on how to tell your own hard tale? The site has those as well.

Site founders Rebecca Sofer and Gabrielle Birkner have created a warm space here at Modern Loss. It's solid. It's comforting. It's real. And they're on twitter, too.
