20 Things Your Grieving Friends and Family Wish You Knew, Part 1

Updated: May 6

Here are the five things I talked about in this video (in no particular order):

  1. Please talk about person who died.

  2. Offer specific ways to help, or ask what they need.

  3. Don’t give advice. Alternatively, tell them what has helped you, which may or may not be what they need.

  4. Talk less, listen more.

  5. Be very patient with their grief process. Don’t say anything to rush them – they would like it to be over more than anyone! The reality is that their grief will never completely end, though it should get easier eventually.
