The live nature of Twitch means viewers can often discuss their problems with their favorite broadcaster, and streamer Sweet_Anita produced some wonderful words of wisdom when a fan asked her for advice on how to stop grieving.

One of the most powerful things about Twitch is the connection that can be built between a viewer and their favorite content creators, and sometimes a word from one of these streamers can make a huge difference to peoples’ lives.

One such viewer asked Anita back in June for advice on coping with grief, with the Brit responding with some incredibly sage and poignant advice that is some of the best guidance you’re ever likely to hear.

Sweet_Anita, TwitterAnita had some sage advice for a viewer.

When Anita’s fan asked how to deal with grief, the streamer explained in a lovely and heartfelt momentthat it’s not possible to just stop grieving, but that you have to let it take its course.

“How do you stop grieving? You don’t.” the streamer explained. “And if you try to stop, you won’t. Grieving is a natural pain and it has to take its course. There will be a piece of you that is gone, but every day you will learn to work with the rest of you a little bit better until it doesn’t matter that it’s not there anymore.”

Anita continued: “When it comes to a loved one – especially a really close loved one – there will always be days where you feel their absence more than others. The way I have learned to cope with losing people in my life is to appreciate the moments I had, rather than being bratty and mourn the days I didn’t get to have.

“I’m not going to be angry that I didn’t get more, it was a privilege to know them every day that I got to. It could have been shorter, but I got that time, I’m so happy I did. Whenever I catch myself being upset, I try to focus in on all the things I benefited from by their existence, and I become determined not to let their presence become a source of sadness or negativity.”

Whether Anita’s amazing advice helped the viewer remains unknown, but it serves as a beautiful reminder to all of us that enjoy the moments we have with the people we love, rather than mourn the memories that we don’t get the opportunity to make.


TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
