1. I know how you are feeling
Everyone experiences loss and grief differently, and you should encourage the bereaved to have their own unique experience of the loss.
2. At least the death was quick so there wasn’t pain
There are times when some individuals spend a lot and go through a lot of stress while trying to save a loved one, and eventually the person dies.
3. They are in a better place
This statement is used as a result of the biblical belief that this world is not our permanent home and that heaven is a better place.
Even if this statement is correct, saying it to someone in grief as a form of condolence may be inappropriate.
4. Now you can move on with your life
5. Don’t worry, you’ll get over it soon
While you may want to help the bereaved look toward the future, it’s important to give a grieving person the time and space to experience their feelings.
