Prompted by a follower to discuss losing her father, she explained that she understands that almost everyone is dealing with some form of grief.
“I’m sorry to hear the anniversary of you’re dad is coming round again Bonnie but I am glad to hear you’re doing relatively ok, so good on you, I’d safely say he’s very proud of you anyways and everything that you’re doing and achieving so well done you and keep up the great work,” the message from her follower read.
“Grief is so common – everyone has lost someone and everyone is always going through their own battles or struggles,” Bonnie responded.
She enthused about her followers writing: “I feel like I’ve got the nicest people who follow me, I always say it – I don’t know how I got so lucky to have the nicest people who I chat to in my DMs every day.”
She continued by saying: “To anyone dealing with grief or loss. Some days are good some are bad but I promise the good days get better and the bad get fewer.”
What lovely advice.
