Hi, there. Is 'cause natural as a connector word here?

I heard you got divorced. Are you okay? 'Cause I know how hard it is.

Yes, but only in very informal conversation.

It is, of course, a short form of "I'm asking because I know ..."

'cause is a non-standard abbreviation for because and is best avoided by students.
