In my interview with Rachel Tenpenny Crawford she shared this quote, the best advice she got from post-loss counseling. She also said:
We were both in so much pain that we couldn’t be there for each other. Accepting that, I gave him the freedom to grieve his own way and I was not going to judge him, and not have unfair expectations on how he was going to help me feel better.
