Fear And Grief: 'When You Lose Your Mother, You Also Lose Your Childhood'

Fear And Grief: 'When You Lose Your Mother, You Also Lose Your Childhood'

Commented Aug 17, 2012 at 12:20:43 in Healthy Living

“I totally agree! What great perspective this article offers us all. As to the comment, "...it wasn't what you needed at the time but it might have been what they needed," I have to posit that when we offer condolences, it is to support and hold up the person to whom we are offering those condelences. So perhaps a good way to do that is to focus on what it is that person needs right then, not what we ourselves are needing right then. If we can selflessly put ourselves in their shoes when offering our condolences, then our actions and words will mirror our intentions, and the person on the receiving end will get exactly what we intend to give them. Thank you, Deborah!”
