It is an interesting journey as a bereaved human to see what happens within our surrounding friends and family. As much as we are overwhelmed, helpless and scared with the loss, so are our ‘friends’. Their intention is mostly good, their words or actions often show their helplessness and not being equipped to deal with the bereaved mother or father. They too experience the loss of the pre-loss friendship, as much we have lost our pre-loss self.
The quote is part of the interview series on ‘Grieving Parents dealing with the Loss of their Child’ which will become part of the forthcoming book ‘Grieving Parents: Surviving Loss as a Couple’. Find out more about the book on the links below and the respective pages on FB.
