When someone's world is turned upside down by tragedy, it's easy to feel helpless in how to best support them. What to say? What to not say? Should I send that text? Should I give them space?
As a young person who's lost a sister, I'm sharing the advice and guidance I wish my friends had when I first lost her so you can cope better with your own grief and in supporting your friend with theirs.
Please note there's no black and white rules with this - I'm simply sharing what I found most helpful and most unhelpful during my traumatic first month of grief. The most important thing to remember is to always ask what they need if you're unsure (rather than just assume), and to not judge yourself or your friend; you're both doing the best you can.
