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.

I loved it’ KATHERINE MAY—————Welcome to the club. I’m still here now, all these years later. You don’t leave once you’ve joined; it’s a life membership. Grief eases and changes and returns but it never disappears. But you will be okay. Somehow you will be. When Cariad was just fifteen, her dad died. She became the person-whose-dad-had-died; a mess of emotions and questions; a grief-mess. Years later, she began trying to unravel this tightly wound grief. What had happened? What effect had it all had on who she was? She started Griefcast, the podcast that talks openly, honestly and at times cheerfully about life’s most difficult moment: its end. Inspired by her own grief mistakes and lessons, and from the profound and witty insights from her incredible guests – including Philippa Perry, Reverend Richard Coles, Isabel Allende, Nish Kumar and Marian Keyes – Cariad provides a road map for all of us. For anybody who has felt lost in grief, who wants to help someone struggling, or just wants to understand this life a little better. You are not alone.
