Ok, so, you’re dating somebody and they’ve had a death in the family and now they are starting to disappear on you. That can be so painful because your relationship was going so well, and now, it’s not going at all. So what do you do?
Well, honestly, there are a number of ways to help the other person. You can help them grieve, provide distractions or even help them feel good. There is, however, a key understanding that we have to have when considering the other person. We want to help them, not help them get back to us. There are a number of people that I speak to that will ask me how to get it “back to normal,” and frankly, there is no more “normal” anymore. This person’s life has changed, so when things heal they will be a different version of who they were. Some would say go deeper.
So please, watch the video below. In this video, I talk about it in more detail, and it’ll help you with a few key understandings. Not only about death but about the accidental pressure we put on other people as well.
