Below are the final two of Dr. Karen Wyatt’s seven ways to use grief to unite us from the End-of-Life University podcast, “How Grief Unites Us: To Stand Together for Love”:
Find harmony with others - Instead of thinking about your differences, you can unite by thinking about similarities. We all have mortality, love and pain in common. Focus on the commonalities.
Share love rather than hatred – As Karen said, “Grief opens up the pathway and love will build the bridge.” You learn compassion from grief and can share it with others to connect.
And remember, depending on where you are on your grief journey, you may only be ready to think about the first way.
I’ll leave you with Karen’s closing words on this podcast: “We’re here for love. So face your fear. Be ready for whatever life brings your way and love this life of yours right here and right now while you have the chance.”
