Thank you for becoming a member of the Grieving.com community. Most of our members are here because they need to find support and empowerment on their journey. We are a community made up of people from over 100 countries and all walks of life. All members must abide by the following guidelines.
Grieving.com wants to provide a forum where people can find support and empowerment on their grief journeys. To enable a safe, compassionate environment, we ask you to follow the rules of CARE: Create, Allow, Respect, and Empathize.
Create a caring environment by
- respecting the original author's post.
- responsibly sourcing information from a third party by linking to the original site.
- avoiding spamming or advertising on the site without permission.
- posting in the appropriate forum, by topic.
Allow fellow posters their individuality by
- understanding that English may not be a poster's first language.
- accepting that each person's grief journey is unique.
- never discriminating based upon beliefs, race, gender, culture, or sexual identity.
Respect one another and Grieving.com by
- never stalking, harassing, or threatening another grieving individual.
- never attempting to provide professional therapy for another member.
- keeping the anger associated with grief directed at outside sources, not fellow posters.
Empathize with one another by
- empowering one another instead of judging one another.
- giving those in need access to tools such as the suicide hotline.
- acknowledging that we are all equal in our grief.
We all care for each other here. If a poster steps outside these guidelines, consequences including warnings, suspensions, or banning may be necessary to ensure continued compassion within the community.
