My dear friends in a widow’s group put this little video together.
One thing I have learned that I want to pass on to you and it’s mentioned several places in the above video…please don’t ever try to marginalize someone’s situation by saying that you understand what they are going through. Even if you mirror the exact situation, I guarantee that you don’t know what they are going through because we all process and feel things differently at different intensities and times. Pain is pain, grief is grief and loss is loss. It’s all raw, but you can’t possibly understand what someone feels exactly at any given time.
