Intuitive Mourners Experience a Full, Rich Range of Emotions in Response to Grief

Intuitive Mourners Experience a Full, Rich Range of Emotions in Response to Grief

Posted by on Jul 24, 2014 in Blog, Comfort, Grief Relief, Loss

Knowing what to say to a grieving friend or relative requires a bit more than what comes easy for you.  It may require a little time getting close to the bereaved and determining their style of grieving.

Intuitive mourners experience a full, rich range of emotions in response to grief. Comfortable with strong emotions and tears, they are sensitive to their own feelings and to the feelings of others as well. Since they feel strong emotions so deeply, they’re less able to rationalize and intellectualize the pain of grief, and more likely to appear overwhelmed and devastated by it.

In cases like this empathy with their pain and emotions will go a long way.  Commands such as, “You have to pull yourself together,” can be hurtful.  Allowing them to express their deepest hurts with a heart-felt, “Tell me how you feel today,” can be greatly appreciated.

Knowing what to say to the bereaved may demand some forethought and time, but well worth the effort in help them move on to victory.
