Today on The Marc and Mandy Show, shares three tips for how to help friends or family to deal with grief. Keep reading to find out more.
- Grief is normal and natural. First of all, grief is a normal and natural reaction to a loss of any kind, and it’s really about learning how to live with a broken heart. So, with that in mind, we want to silence the platitudes and all of the statements that aren’t particularly helpful or supportive.
- Avoid any statement that begins with “at least.” For instance, “At least, you have more children”; or, “At least you’re young enough to get married again.” It diminishes the life of the person who is now passed on and the relationship your friend or family had with them.
- Instead of trying to relate, accept the fact that you can’t. Try saying something like, “I know you’re going through a lot of pain right now, and I actually don’t really know what you’re experiencing or what to say. So, I want you to know what I’m here, and if you ever want to share with me some stories about them or your life together, I would love to learn more.”
