Hope for the Grieving
One of the things I've learned in my grief walk is that grief is a lot like falling in love. You can't possibly describe it to someone that hasn't ever experienced it, and when it happens to you, you know beyond a shadow of a doubt what it is. Some relationships have waned because dear friends simply couldn't understand that what I was going through had nothing to do with them at all. While other relationships blossomed in a dynamic and delightful way, because those friends understood how to come alongside me when I desperately needed a friend to hold me up.
All of this is to say, if you see someone struggling along their grief walk, and you feel so compelled to offer a helping hand, please have the boldness to go and love on them. Share this article, or some other post to get a conversation going, and then walk alongside them for a while.
It just may be what they needed all along.
