Men and Women Grieve Differently

Women tend to approach grief differently than men. Often women have a network of friends and relationships already in place, providing them an opportunity for deep personal sharing. Men don’t often have a network except perhaps through peers at work. Whether you are a man or a woman, you need to vent your emotions, and use other people to help you heal. Seek out support and when people ask how they can help –

– ask them to just listen while you talk about your loved one

– ask them to call you once and awhile to check in and see how you are doing

– ask them to invite you out or over for coffee and dinner
