We recently asked WYG readers about the best and worst things anyone has said to them in their grief, hoping for some specific examples that we might then be able to offer as guidance to all those seeking answers. And though they provided some amazing insight, things still remain — well — complicated. Why is this so tricky? Also, timing can make all the difference, so you may just have the bad luck of picking the wrong moment. Or, you might be the right person to say something to one friend or family member, but the wrong person to say it to another. Eleanor made a super graphic about this over in the post of the 64 Worst Things Ever Said to a Grieverso make sure you check that out if you missed it. These suggestions are often general statements or ways of being. So, without further ado.
Collective isolation in grief is oh accordingly common. Social isolation in winter is oh so common. Conversations about collective isolation? Not so common. We allusion social isolation a lot around at this juncture, but we have never had a whole post about it. Seeing at the same time as I have recently been in the depths of social isolation, it seemed time to change that. This almost certainly seems obvious. Social isolation looks akin to isolating oneself from other people, right?
