Why this blog?
After the sudden loss of my wife, I was confused with several questions running inside my head. Not knowing what’s next. Looking for answers, I made a friend who happened to be a widow. We were able to relate to each other’s problem easily. The non-judgmental advice and empathy we had for each other, helped me a lot. It was my friend’s idea to start an online community and cast this support net to more people. ‘The Phoenix Family’ community was formed to share the experience of how transforming life would be amongst people who have gone through the same life experience.
I started this community in February 2014 for widow(er)s, divorcees, separated and single parents. As of today we have 30+ active members. All our members have seen a huge positive transformation in their lives, which would be evident from the testimonials that will be updated here on a regular basis. The next step would be to spread this to a larger audience through this blog initiative. The posts in this blog will be focused on sharing our life experiences, learnings or positive feelings. As a reader, we expect you to derive inspiration, find helpful advice and make you feel that you are not alone with your problems. Most of our members will write under a pen name to conceal their identity. We hope to reach out to many widow(er), divorcees, and those separated through this blog and hand hold them in this ‘phase’.
