Lean on Friends and Family in Bereavement

We need our friends and family when coping with bereavement. To talk with or just be with. Often we are sharing bereavement….we both loved the person who died

We may want some time alone when we are dealing with grief and that’s okay, but we must also make sure to not shut out those who love us most. They want to give us bereavement support.

grieving together

Don’t try to act as if you are okay – let them help you cope with grief. Ask for help when you need it. They really WANT to do something for you! They can’t take away your pain, but trust me on this, they want to serve you and take care of you!

And they will – in any way you ask, even if it is just sitting there holding your hand without saying a word. Some people are better at sensing what you need than others, be grateful for those naturals and don’t worry about asking the others specifically for what you need from them.
