At Least... we say it all to often following a loss.
Anything that begins with “At least...” like, "At least they didn’t suffer," or, "At least it was a quick death," isn't helpful to a grieving person.
I didn’t realise I was saying it too, until it was pointed out to me. Now I am more mindful about using those words.
Rather than ‘At Least now he is in a better place” Try, “What’s one of your favourite memories of him?”
The ‘At Least’ statements do actually come out of a concern to fix things and make the person feel better. But no qualifying statement can take away the pain of losing someone you love 💕🐶🐱🐹🐴🐤🌷
