I put this under “Magical Monday”, because death and grief are a part of life. That many of us don’t like to talk about, until it affects us. I totally get that. What I want to talk about, or write about how do we helps others cope? When I was thinking about it, we all know people from different religions and different walks of life. So when we know someone who comes from a different life, what do we say, or what can we do? Because I don’t know.
I would like to know though.
My mum and I, as an example, we both hate saying to others “I’m so sorry for your lost”. We don’t mind other people saying it to us. We just dislike saying it to others. But what else can you say. You are actually so sorry for their lost, but we just feel like lots of people say it. It must get repetitive.
So I would like to know, coming from your background. How do you, your culture, your religion, your family…How do you handle grief?
