helping partner cope with loss
My partner of 3 years has recently lost both his mother and grandmother within the space of a week and naturally is really struggling to deal with everything that is going on around him. He is the type of person that finds it difficult to talk about how he is feeling and tends to push people away when he feels overwhelmed which is exactly what he is doing at the moment, pushing me away and hardly talking. I understand that everybody grieves in different ways and that this is his way of grieving but it breaks my heart in two to see him like this and to not be able to do anything about it. I know that all I can do at the moment is be there for him and offer him all my love and support and comfort him and I know that he will talk when he is ready. IÃ¢ÂÂm just finding it really difficult, nobody likes seeing someone they love in pain. Some advice from people who have been in the same situation or have ever helped their partner deal with the loss of a loved one would be much appreciated.
