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.
