How To Be Supportive
"If you are a loving person, you offer help whenever
there is a need."
Sometimes a small gesture is all it takes to
help a grieving friend.
It's been said that a person needs to discuss their loss at
least a hundred times in order to help move through their grief.
But it's so hard to talk about death. It's uncomfortable. You don't
know if you're saying the right thing. We often waste effort trying
to make someone forget what he or she is going through.
Let your friend or family member talk about their loss. Listen
and let them laugh or cry. Hold their hand. Just be a friend and
help them move through their grief.
Because showing your support doesn't have to be a grand gesture.
It's just about being there for your friend, colleague or family
In this section, you'll find invaluable information on how to
support your friend - helping you with what to say, what to give,
or even how to get there physically to hold their hand.
