What an awful, painful, and difficult experience to go through; spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Also, it is equally heartbreaking and difficult to watch someone else that grieves, especially someone that is close to you, like a family member or a friend!
Talking to, helping, and supporting a surviving person with their grief is a crucial part of their ability to handle the loss, manage the pain, and eventually move forward without their loved one. It is obviously also a loving and a kind thing to do to another person in need.
However, in my work as a medium, as well as my volunteer work as a hospital chaplain, I come across common reactions from people that do not know how to approach, what to say, or how to help a person, a stranger, family, or friend, that experienced a loss. They mean well, and want to help, but the subjects of death is so fragile and sensitive that they are at loss of words, feel awkward, nervous to say the wrong things, afraid that by talking about it they can “hurt more than they can help”, or simply don’t want to talk about it and “rock the boat” that will stir up the pain. People are also often afraid of the grieving person’s reaction, which can be different with each person, and at times unpredictable and out of character, which in turn causes them to remain silent and say nothing!
I will do my best to cover all of it in the video so you’ll feel comfortable and have the knowledge and the tools to know how to approach, talk, and help a grieving person!
