When Facing Death, Words Can Do a Lot.

In this podcast, Dr. Ira Byock highlights the importance of healing old relational wounds.  I am excited to share this because many of the people I see for grief counseling would be in far less pain today had they had the opportunity to have these sorts of conversations with their loved ones.  While still very possible, it's much harder to reconcile old wounds when the other person is no longer here.  Should you have the opportunity now, consider your future grief and don't wait.

Grief

Dr. Byock advises four statements that can guide these conversations.  I think they can also be a useful way of understanding about what grieving people need to reconcile before they can move forward following a death.

  • Please forgive me
  • I forgive you
  • Thank you
  • I love you
