The Absolute Worst Thing You Can Do For A Griever


The worst thing you can do for someone in grief:

NOTHING

Be there. Be available. Be loving and  supportive. Don’t be judgmental or controlling.  And if necessary be uncomfortable. Do all this as long as the griever needs you in their grief journey.

Written by Larry M. Barber, LPC-S, CT author of the grief survival guide “Love Never Dies: Embracing Grief with Hope and Promise”  available online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Christianbook.com.
