Welcome to the Taylor Hagen Memorial Foundation’s Blog.!
After putting together different events, retreats, and activities this year we have come to realize how important it is to create a safe space for our friends and family to share their thoughts and emotions. We loved the idea of creating a blog on our website for others to share their stories and learn from other’s experiences as well. One thing we have all learned at THMF is that it is an absolute key part of healing in our grief to be able to express oneself; to share your feelings, thoughts, and your story is vital for our self-care. We wish for this blog to be that safe space for you to be heard, accepted, and understood.
The members of THMF wish to share with you their journey in hopes of providing friendship, guidance, and acceptance. We will be blogging along with you as a family and we would love to post your stories here as well. You will be able to read about the different types of grief we have all endured and you can connect and get to know us and our stories. What we’re struggling with on a daily-basis just like the millions of others that have lost loved ones too soon to mental illness/suicide.
After suffering with the loss of Taylor, we have all come together to provide each other with love and support. The goal of THMF has always been to offer support and help with the healing of others. Whether you have experienced a loss, suffer from depression or struggle with your personal mental health, we want to open the door for you to be able to share. Our personal experience of creating our own support group of friends and family that have suffered similar losses has been more crucial to us than we could have ever imagined and we wish to share that same experience with you.
We are all surviving one day at a time, but you don’t need to do it alone. This is life, you can share anything with us. Short and sweet, sad or uplifting. Stories of your trials and heartbreak OR of strength and overcoming! You can send in your responses to other bloggers, give feedback (maybe you have some tips & tricks up your sleeve!) and encouragement! This if life, it can be joyous and rewarding OR it can be downright complicated and painful. Let’s be there for each other and create friendships of love and support. THIS IS LIFE, let’s make the most of it TOGETHER!
I'm here honoring my brother Taylor Hagen, whom I have been missing with all of my heart since January 6, 2017; why are you here?
