The Holidays are about
keeping family traditions, creating memories and spreading some Christmas
spirit. If you have lost a loved one, it is important for those around you to
grasp the magnitude of how grief will impact you. Loss is loss. And the
Holidays are especially difficult to endure when you are grieving. People
may have the best intentions yet they also say things that make you want to
respond with “Did you seriously just say that?” or “Did
you not get hugged enough as a child to say something so insensitive?”
The worst grief that anyone will ever experience is your own.
Why aren’t we pausing before we speak to someone before blurting out something that is not comforting? At times when emotions are very raw from grief, consider the following suggestions you can do to communicate with compassion. Make your words feel like a hug! Hugs help those who are hurting. Simply stated, hugs comfort.
Below I share a few things to say and not to say to someone who is grieving.
Thank you for viewing!
