Online Grief Group support for widowed young, widower, widow, widowed parent | Balanced Wheel | BW






I unexpectedly found myself as a single parent with a bereaved family. With no fault of mine, I became a young widowed, widower, a male widow who has had some bereavement support and bereavement help from my support network following the death of my young spouse, Chidinma Olajide (onuzo). I am learning to deal with the grief of the loss of a spouse, in my case, the loss of a wife. I have found various online and offline people with grief in common. I have discovered some really useful grief resources which I intend to share with Balanced Wheel | Bw's online communities. I found speaking with those who have experienced loss especially those with similar type have been extremely helpful in my healing journey. I also found that there are different types of grief which in turn affects how we respond and react to our losses.

We believed that we were going to grow old together. We were still in the early stages of our marriage. We started a family; we were looking forward to a full life together. We dreamt of growing old together and seeing our children forge their own paths.


I was still married when I woke up on 30th March 2020. I found myself abruptly as a widower when I was informed that my wife. Chidinma Olajide had died. My status unwillingly changed from being married to being a widowed young, widowed parent, grieving single father, etc.


Grieving is often done in private. I am on a journey to find healing, sustain hope, and aim to grow through this trauma that I have experienced.
