One of the more difficult things to witness is a loved one that is experiencing suffering. It hurts to watch them in such pain, and for many of us, we’d do pretty much anything to take away the pain that our loved one is experiencing. And there inlays the danger.
Offering religious platitudes and glib advice seem to be our “go-to” strategy for dealing with other’s grief, but in my experience, rarely works. In fact, it typically makes it worse. So what can we do to journey alongside our loved ones when they experience grief/pain/suffering/brokenness?
This week I made a video about exactly that. Take a look and be sure to subscribe and leave a comment with what you’ve found to be helpful in journeying with others during difficult times.
