I follow her on Twitter & whenever I’m having a rough time, I scroll through her timeline & can always find something that helps me deal with those tough moments.
This blog post & the video that accompanies is no different.
It’s equally as helpful.
In the video, Megan shares some tangible ways to bear witness to the pain of others we care about in times where we might be tempted to be at a loss or want to try & fix things.
Megan also has some great pieces she’s done for the Huffington Post that are worth a read.
I think her writing is helpful for any facet of grief, whether it’s loss, illness, or anywhere in between. Or for well meaning people who want to show support or care but are at a loss as to how to go about it without firing off platitudes or what they feel might be trite sounding phrases.
