Every individual grieves the concept of loss in their own personal way, which could include not being able to speak about the subject at all. In her new blog post, Leah Royden shares her personal experience with losing her brother to suicide. She touches on the perspective of her friends, how she perceived certain events that followed and how we can help those in our lives that have been through trauma. Please encourage your loved ones to seek professional help so that the trauma does not remain a part of their lives.
- Many people have incorrect assumptions about others and how they deal with grief.
- Talking about and addressing issues in a controlled environment like therapy is vital to the healing process.
- Being with someone, supporting and talking to them during trauma is challenging but very important to them.
