I Know How You Feel

November 26, 2022

Grief is ugly.

Grief hurts.

Grief will bring out the worst in you.

Grief will bring out the worst in people around you.

We were not taught how to grieve properly.

Most of the people that have gone before you on this journey will still tell you that they never figured it out.

But they will give us the worst advice ever…”I Know How You Feel My…Just Died”

Please know that telling a griever that you know how they feel because you have just had your cat die is one of the most disrespectful things that we can say to a griever.

Just sit with them and listen.  The trust is you do not know how their heart feel.  You only know your own pain.  Now is not the time to share your pain.
