How Your Grief Makes You More Compassionate

Most of us become familiar with grief at some point in our early lives, but it may not take shape for others until we are an adult. When we experience loss later in life, it may become more challenging for us to cope. Having compassion for others who are grieving is a strength of kindness and unconditional love. Realize that your grief can help you grow spiritually as a person if you allow it to expand your views on life, mortality, and human potential. 

Learn to listen 

There's nothing more painful than not be heard by others while you are grieving. Sometimes your grief will exhaust your friends because they become tired of listening to it. Most of the time, this is due to their lack of experience with it, and they don't know how to fathom how something can be so heavy and hard to work through. Grieving makes you aware of the importance of listening as well as being heard. When a friend of yours loses a loved one, you will respond with compassion, having been through it, and you will listen more instead of trying to give a piece of one-size-fits-all advice.

Slow down and reflect more 

Grief forces you to slow down, pause, and reflect on lives with the loved one you have lost. It can even cause you to rethink your current life trajectory and consider a different way of life. Life may move on without your wanting, but you may still be pausing and reflecting on how the loss has affected you. Don't let the fast pace of others force you to speed up. There is value in slowing down and reflecting. We often make better decisions when we have time to pause and reflect, especially when we grieve. This type of reflection allows you to be more kind to others who are suffering and give them space and time to go through their process of grief.

Develop more patient with others 

Having sat with your own grief for a certain amount of time allows you to be more patient and kind to others who are grieving. There is no time limit on grief or the shape it takes for everyone. It is an individualized process that becomes a way of life for many people moving forward. Some losses become a part of you, helping you develop a more profound sense of patience in all areas of life.

Take things less personally 

Once you go through grief for a more extended period of time, you tend not to take things as personally as you might have before. People often take their stress out on others when they are grieving. When this is reflected on you, it develops an awareness that you may not have had earlier and enables you to feel compassion for people who are hurting. After all, hurt people often hurt others.

More supportive of others who are grieving 

When you see people grieving, you will become more likely to console them and help support them in the ways needed. You understand the process better once you have experienced it and are better at gauging when someone needs help, and one someone needs support by maintaining distance from afar. You may also become more aware of things that are inappropriate to say while others are grieving and lean into your listening and sympathy skills.

Always remember the feelings of loss 

Once you've lost a loved one, you never forget the feelings of loss. You may have moved on with your life, but the hole that is left in your life becomes a part of you. Understanding that aspect of grief makes you more compassionate to anyone who has just started the process after losing a loved one.

Become an advocate for others 

For some people who go through loss, you may become an advocate for certain types of grief. People who have lost children sometimes start support groups for others with the same kind of loss. Those who have lost loved ones to diseases or violence will sometimes lean into advocacy to develop cures, awareness, and prevention. This is where your pain serves a greater good, and you become a more compassionate person as a result of your loss. You take the loss and give it a larger meaning, and share it with others who are doing the same. There is nothing more profound than doing that to honor your grief and the life of the person you lost than trying to save others.
