Let's Get this Straight

Day 90: Let’s get this straight

I’m happy to report that it is less often that I hear from clients that someone has offered up the dreaded “well, they are in a better place” response. I think the word is getting out that this response can be quite unhelpful, no matter what belief system someone subscribes to.

The main reason this response is unhelpful is because it doesn’t have anything to do with why someone is actually grieving—we don’t grieve because we think someone is doing great on the other side (if we believe that). We grieve because our person is not HERE, on this earth, with us, as they used to be.

Welcome to my 100-day project. I hope to provide a daily offering on something grief-related. I am a grief therapist and educator working with people in Oregon, Washington, DC, Maryland, and Maine. This feed is in honor of each person who has trusted me with their stories and wisdom during their grief journey. I hope that others may benefit from simple and straightforward talk about a topic that can be difficult.
