This is such a beautiful truth and very important. Thank you so much for articulating this for Autism Awareness accept adapt advocate shirt! We need to be better at teaching our children how to sit with someone else’s pain. This is a hard topic and so worth the discussion. Thank you. I think people are scared to do or say the wrong thing and so sometimes ignore the situation because of this fear. Dale Carnegie classes teach to share a personal story so the other person feels you are ‘qualified’ to express empathy. I don’t know if this is always the best suggestion under these circumstances. Personally, I think listening and just being there is one of the best options. Showing care and compassion in any way is always preferred over ignoring a situation out of your own fear.

This is such a lovely contribution to Autism Awareness accept adapt advocate shirt. Thank you for these insights and considerations. I have learned so much from this lovely community today. Even though people did not always agree, everyone was kind in expressing their views. I so appreciate that. Very heart wrenching painful tragedies. I think that empathizing with people who are in pain is what helps the very most. Definitely, don’t cut them off to share your story as though it were more important, but it IS refreshing to hear words and wisdom from those who really have been there. So, the key about observing facial cues really matters. Listen and respond accordingly. Nothing can bring back a loved one, but love helps. I think in comparison with all the really tactless things that are said to someone these days when someone dies, (believe me I’ve heard a mouthful) unifying with someone about something you’ve been through is one of the better responses out there.
