“I’m sorry for your loss”
“I’m sorry you’re going through such a tough time”
Whatever words feel right to you to acknowledge the loss, use them.
Turn down the volume of the voices in your mind. The voice of judgement, comparison, reasoning, fixing, making it right. The voice that wishes to say “at least”.
In that moment, imagine the other person is the only person in the world and their pain is the only pain in the world. And acknowledge it.
Show them that you see them. See their pain. Hear their story. Witness their grief.
To someone who is grieving…this is everything ❤
