Allison Holker Boss, a dancer and TV host, recently opened up about how she’s coping with the loss of her husband, Stephen « tWitch » Boss, who died by suicide in December 2020. In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Allison shared how she’s finding new purpose by helping others who are struggling silently. She launched the Move with Kindness Foundation in Stephen’s honor to support mental health initiatives and spread hope and positivity. Allison also emphasized the importance of honest communication with her children and teaching them that it’s okay to feel angry or sad.
Allison still grapples with a « complex » web of emotions, including sorrow, disappointment, love, and anger. However, she’s fueled by purpose and wants to continue Stephen’s legacy of bringing joy to the world. She hasn’t been able to return to dancing yet, but she knows that she’ll get there with Stephen guiding her on this path. Allison’s trauma manifested physically in the first few weeks after Stephen’s death, but she’s found relief through cold-plunging at night, which has helped her body release tension.
Allison’s home is still a sanctuary, and she’s left Stephen’s things untouched. She wants her kids to know how much love he brought to the world and how much of his love is still in their house. Allison believes that it’s okay to lean on someone else when feeling low or depressed and wants people to feel safe talking to her and opening up. She also forgave Stephen and expressed her emotions of sadness, forgiveness, love, and joy under the stars in their backyard.
