What to Avoid Saying

As this is such a sensitive time for those suffering a loss there are a few things you will want to avoid saying to make sure you don’t cause offence.

  • Don’t compare a loss you’ve suffered to theirs. Each is individual and unique, and by comparing them you could make there’s feel less important
  • Avoid using anything like “it’s for the best” or “it was Gods plan”. These sorts of phrases may be well intentioned but make assumptions that the person suffering the Loss could disagree with.
  • Try to always send an actual card rather than an email or Facebook message. A card always shows you’ve made an effort and put some thought into it
  • Don’t go into unnecessary details about the person’s death. Going over the cause of their passing just brings up unwanted memories
  • And never bring up money or a will. This isn’t the time and would be very disrespectful
