Whenever we see a grieving person, a person who is hurt and in deep pain, we always tell them to forget about everything, move on and cheer up!.
But no one has ever thought about that, does it really helps the grieving person or not?
What the other person is feeling? how do we help them to feel better?
To answer these questions, Megan Devine of Refuge in Grief has created a truly insightful animation that offers helpful advice about consoling a friend who is in grief. Rather than telling them to cheer up or look on the bright side, Devine suggests that a simple acknowledgment of their pain will be far more productive in helping them heal.
