Respecting Another’s Grief

When we lose a loved one’s presence in this life, the grieving process begins. Each one’s experience is unique and personal. Each one’s grief is theirs alone.

We can understand to a point, what losing someone is like because we have been there. We can relate to the feelings that grief brings. We can express our sorrow for their loss. We can be there for them. We can pray.

What we can’t do is experience the depth of someone’s grief because that is based on a personal relationship and love. Each one’s grief is unique as each one’s grief is personal. Each one’s grief is theirs alone. We do best to respect another’s grief as we would have them respect ours.

  2. Lovely post. I like the bears. We had identical bears with one going in the casket and one staying with us.. we like to think of being linked forever in that way.

  3. The most we can do is reach out a hand; the grieving person may not be ready to grab it. Just have it ready when they do! Great post.
