One of the most common reasons someone avoids a grieving friend is fear.
- They don’t think their bereaved friend wants to talk about the loss.
- They feel a sense of dread because they don’t know what to say or do.
- They think it’s too late to learn how to express empathy. It’s doesn’t come naturally.
No one should grieve alone.
Few gifts can equal the tender presence of a friend with whom a griever can wholly trust with their traumatic loss.

Ordinary people become an extraordinary Hope Hero when they express empathy to the hurting.
Empathy is the key that unlocks the door to a broken heart and opens the way for HOPE to be shared.
Inspiring HOPE is the most radical and life-giving thing you can do.
Be the reason a grieving soul believes that God cares for them. Be a Hope Hero.
