There truly are no right words to say to someone who’s grieving. And I found that people tend to shy away and situation turns awkward when you mention that you’ve just lost a dear one. I tend to avoid mentioning the loss of my mother nowadays. There’s no two same experiences and I can’t say I know how you feel because I don’t. I can only send you a (virtual) warm hug and healing. Everything will be okay. Thank you for sharing your story. It’s nice to know that we’re not alone in this.
