How to Show Up for Someone Grieving
Meg Gibbs

Meg, thank you. My deepest sympathies to you and those close to you going through loss. This one struck a nerve with me. Loss almost seems to be my middle name. I have more people that I’ve lost, than I have fingers and toes to count them on. It never hurts any less. I wish I had people that had just shown up for me, but they did. Hell, even with my divorce, that felt very much like a death because he’s truly gone.

Regardless of my situation, I hope I know how to show up for someone. I will keep your words close to the vest. I may not know what to say or do, hell I may promise you the world, but know that I’m there and not going anywhere. I want to provide the love and support I was never provided, loss after loss.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
