TIP OF THE DAY
How to Comfort a Grieving Person
By eHow Relationships & Family Editor
Allow the person to talk about his grief and express his feelings. Listen without offering advice or interrupting.
Be patient with the grieving person's changeable moods. It's normal for someone who is grieving to alternate between anger, sadness, numbness and acceptance.
Give the person as much time as he needs to grieve. Telling him to 'get over it' or 'let it go' won't help him grieve any faster.
Ask the bereaved what you can do to help. Try not to get frustrated if he doesn't know what he needs.
Offer suggestions of what you could do to help. For example, does the grieving person need more space? Does he want you to be around more? Are there tasks or errands he needs done?
Show affection such as hugs or handholding if the bereaved seems receptive. If he seems uninterested in affection, try not to get irritated - this will pass with time.
Encourage the grieving person to join a grief support group. He can call his doctor for a referral or look in the community service section of the yellow pages for grief support services.
Urge the grieving person to get professional help if he's so depressed that he's unable to function day to day. Assist him in setting up an appointment with a doctor to discuss counseling or possible medication.
WE ALSO FEATURED:
Two previously done interviews one being an interview done with Karien de Vliers. Karien wrote an opinion piece on her experience of being a first-time pregnant mother to be. The piece is called, “Step away from pregnant me”. A piece that not only expresses the beautiful moments of pregnancy but the eratic insane moments too, which is normal and part of pregnance.
We then played an interview about a stay at home dad. Freelance writer, Andreas Spath wrote about his experience as a stay at home, the joys, the pains the whole 9 yards.
