Being There for Someone During Hard Times

Watching a loved one go through a period of grief after a significant loss can challenge in ways that leave you feeling helpless. Of course, you want to be there for them during the hard times, but the fragility of the situation can make you feel unsure about what to say or do. Grief can take many human forms, as someone in pain may experience feelings of depression, guilt, anger, isolation, confusion, denial, or something in between.

Discussing the Loss of a Loved One

The loss of a loved one can be difficult to process. Particularly if a loved one is lost following a wrongful death situation, there are a lot of emotions that people might be feeling. Some might experience a feeling of disbelief that their loved one has passed away. Others may have a long list of questions regarding what has happened. There will likely be a complicated mix of emotions, including confusion, sadness, and anger. This is all normal.

Finding the Right Grief Counselor

Losing a loved one, particularly following a wrongful death, can be a challenging situation that requires the attention of a grief counselor. It can be hard for someone to reach out for help during a difficult situation. You might feel like closing yourself off or waiting for the situation to pass. However, evidence shows that it can be easier to process and cope when there is a strong system of support in place.

Roseville Motorcyclist Killed in Accident with Drunk Driver

I’m Ed Smith, a Roseville personal injury attorney. A July 22 collision in Sutter County took the life of a Roseville man when his motorcycle was struck by a drunk driver. The collision occurred along Riego Road, which is west of California State Route 99. The driver who caused the collision was placed under arrest, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), on charges of vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment because there were two children in his vehicle at the time of the crash. I would like to extend my prayers and sympathy to the friends and family of the young man who died in the collision with the hope that they may find solace in their time of sorrow.
