What To Say When Someone Is Grieving


Grief is an uncomfortable emotion and not knowing what to say is very common, but there are at least 10 things that a grieving person wishes you would say. Grief can look different depending on the circumstances. The grieving person may be dealing with the major illness of a loved one who is still living, or the sudden loss of a child. How can we best be of help to our loved ones at a time like this?

10 THINGS TO SAY TO A GRIEVING PERSON
Depending on how much time has passed since the sad event that changed their life, it can be difficult to know what a grieving person wishes you would say. Rather than say something that feels awkward to us, we sometimes don’t say anything. That can be the worst thing you could possibly do for a grieving person.

1. I CANNOT POSSIBLY KNOW THE PAIN THAT YOU’RE EXPERIENCING
And you can’t, because each person grieves individually and in different ways. Their experience of the loss is different from your own. Don’t try to compare.

2. CRYING IS PERFECTLY NORMAL AND THIS IS A SAFE PLACE TO DO IT
Make your friend feel comfortable with tears. Often, people feel embarrassed about crying in front of other people so they are hide their tears or ask you to leave so they can cry privately. Let them know that you’re comfortable with tears and there is no judgment.

3. CRYING IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY AND THIS IS A SAFE PLACE TO DO IT
In his book, The Nature of Grief: The Evolution and Psychology of Reactions to Loss, author John Archer says crying is cathartic, and it may serve several healthy purposes for us as we heal. Crying is an emotional release of overwhelming sadness in the body. Crying is an emotional outburst, and it can be seen as a social tool, as in a cry for help from the bereaved. We are rarely processing thoughts as we cry, but are just allowing the emotion to flow out of us in waves like a river flowing to the ocean.

4. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT YOUR EMOTIONS
The grieving person isn’t always willing or able to talk about the loss. A grieving person wishes you would let them know that you have no expectations for their willingness to talk about it with you. If they do, great, you’ll be there for them, and if not, you’re not going anywhere. Read on…

One By One They Died


When a utility worker in Key Largo, Fla., noticed that a section of a paved street was not settling properly, he decided to remove a manhole cover and descend into the earth.

Moments later on Monday morning, the 15-foot-deep hole went silent. Sensing the man was trapped, a fellow utility worker climbed into the drainage hole to rescue him. When he, too, stopped responding, a third worker entered the same hole.

All three men died, overcome by poisonous fumes underground, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. A Key Largo firefighter who made a desperate attempt to save the men also became unconscious within seconds. The firefighter, Leonardo Moreno, an eight-year veteran of the department, was flown to a hospital and was in critical condition Tuesday.

China Tells Effeminate Boys to Man Up


China Is Now Teaching Its ‘Effeminate’ Boys to Man Up
New textbook ‘Little Men’ is being introduced in middle schools
China is apparently concerned that its boys are becoming too effeminate. The country’s solution: a masculinity-promoting school textbook called Little Men, aimed for use in grades 4 and 5. The illustrated book talks about fathers and sons, and it encourages boys to stress their masculine side, with money management and other ostensibly guy-geared topics thrown in. NBC News reports the concern is widespread and that citizens blame the “gender crisis” on everything from too much homework (and too little physical activity), to to being spoiled rotten by parents allowed just one child. “Girls are becoming more like boys while the boys are becoming more like girls, introvert[ed] and shy,” one parent complains. An English-language newspaper in China blamed the perceived problem on “effeminate” actors and pop stars in Japanese and Korean culture.

6-year-old orders $160 dollhouse, 4 pounds of cookies with Amazon’s Echo Dot

 

It was like magic — in 6-year-old Brooke Neitzel’s eyes, anyway.

The little girl from Dallas, Texas, was casually having a conversation with “Alexa,” Amazon’s voice-activated Echo Dot, about her love of dollhouses and sugar cookies one day. And a few days later, both of those items appeared on Neitzel’s doorstep.

So Wrong


A black mother told police a white man assaulted her child. They arrested her instead.

A mother and two family members were arrested Wednesday after confronting a Fort Worth police officer who had been called to investigate the reported assault of a 7-year-old boy, according to a video of the incident.

The mother, Jacqueline Craig, had called police Wednesday afternoon to report that a man had assaulted her son for littering, according to the woman’s relatives. Relatives said that a man in their southwest Fort Worth neighborhood had grabbed the boy by the neck in an attempt to get him to pick up the trash.

After a police officer arrived at the scene in the 7400 block of Rock Garden Trail the situation quickly escalated, with women screaming profanities at the officer, who eventually handcuffed and arrested two women and a 15-year-old girl, believed to be Craig’s daughter.

Shemar Speaks About His dad


Shemar Moore is very close to his mother, but in an interview with Larry King, he revealed that his dad, Sherrod, was locked up in San Quentin prison for a while and it had everything to do with his mom. Although he didn’t go into precise detail of what went down, it seems like his dad obviously did some type of serious harm to his mother to have landed him in prison for years. It’s also clearly evident that Shemar still has love for his dad, but he’s still very emotional and pissed off by his past actions, and rightfully so.
