Through the above part of this article, you made yourself aware of the things that you should write but now it is also very important to learn what should not be written in a condolence message for mothers .

  1. Never force a person through your words to remain quiet after the demise of a loving person. You should never write a sentence like ” You have cried a lot, now please stop crying.”
  2. Words like ” Make a call or text whenever you are free” can also hit the vulnerable heart of the grieving person. Instead of that you can say ” make me aware whenever you need to share something.”
  3. Grief takes time in processing so forcing someone to express his or her emotion is never a good option when writing condolence or sympathy notes.
  4. One should not ask the grieving person to take a break from the daily schedule because indulgence in a regular schedule can only distract people from unbearable pain.
  5. The condolence message should not be too much longer to read because the bereaving person is not in a state of understanding many words or lengthy notes. The messages should be short and to the point.
  6. Do not impose your feelings on the person who is dealing with a lot. Keep aside your difficulties while consoling the grieving person.
  7. Never tell about your experience while consoling the bereaved family members and friends. Sentences like ” I had also faced this” will be felt like a comparison of your and their grief.
  8. One should not write things like ” talk to me and share your grief.” without even knowing their state of mind and convenience. This can hurt them badly.
