There is nothing to fix when it comes to grief and supporting those who are grieving. Because even if your friend might feel broken, those who grieve are not broken. They are not attempting to return to their previous lives. They are attempting to make sense of their new life. They’re not looking for their former selves. They’re learning to accept the person they’ve been forced to become.
Those who are bereaved require people who can embrace their pain and grief. Who are willing to be uneasy with them. People who are here for the journey rather than the destination. The highs and lows, as well as all of the unexpected places in between.
