Did you know…?

It is scientifically documented that grieving extensively can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, and in the case of widowers, even increase the probability of death by 50% during the first year of grief.

Today, death has lost the sensitivity it had before. Grieving after the death of a loved one is not only normal, but necessary, and knowing this is key to manage it.

When it comes to comforting a person, it is important to be aware that nothing we can say will instantly alleviate that person’s pain. To be able to accompany during grieving, one must be able to understand that not everyone grieves at the same pace, and have the sensitivity to respect the pain of the other without trying to minimize or avoid it.

“Pain that doesn’t exteriorize in tears can make other organs cry.”

-Henry Maudsley.
