What to Say to a Grieving Person September 19, 2015
Last week I shared what not to say to a grieving person. This week, I want to focus on what to say to a grieving person.
I can’t imagine how you feel – this is one of the best statements you can say to a griever, for good reasons. Because you don’t know how someone feels, this statement is accurate. Sure you can relate to how someone else may feel but you will never know how someone is feeling. So when people say, “I know how you feel,” that is inaccurate. Only the griever knows how he/she feels because he/she had a unique relationship with the loss. Also, this is an open-ended statement so it gives the griever the option to decide if they want to talk about the loss or if they don’t want to talk about their loss.
Unhelpful Words Said to a Grieving Person September 11, 2015
When it comes to grief and loss, we as a society, are unsure about what to say and what not to say to someone that’s lost a loved one, pet, recently divorced or any other loss. So most of us say what we’ve learned from others and think it’s helpful. Well, the truth is, there are a lot of unhelpful, yet common, statements that are said to a grieving person. Keep in mind that though these statements are expressed with good intentions, they are unhelpful.
