20 Things Your Grieving Friends and Family Wish You Knew, Part 3

Updated: May 6

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

11. Don’t act like you’re there for them when you’re not.

12. Don’t tell them you know how they feel.

13. It’s OK to remind them of the good things in their life, but don’t even approach these until you’ve acknowledged the hard things.

14. Don’t offer spiritual help beyond prayer unless you know them well enough to know they appreciate it, and always consider offering practical help if you're offering spiritual help.

15. Help them find a therapist or support group if you can and if needed, but continue be there for them as you’re able. It’s normal to need professional help while grieving.

I really like this mini series Wesley!!Losing both my parents has been HARD to say the least. Im really glad you are helping people understand how THEY can REALLY help and support others who are grieving. Grief is so weird on so many levels. You have a gift and an obvious passion to help! Your genuinely unique way of delivering clarity and transparency is really helping people! I am one of those people. And for that I thank you!
