Grief is Grief

We all expect someone who has experienced the death of a close friend or relative to grieve, and we send cards, make casseroles, and participate in rituals to acknowledge their loss. We may be less sure how to respond when someone’s cat dies, or they tell us they are separating from a partner, or they have lost a job, or they can no longer drive. These, too, are all circumstances that may cause deep grief. How do we show up for one another in times of sorrow and loss? What could we do better?
