Friendgrief: An Absence Called Presence
Harold Ivan Smith
In a society that disenfranchises grief, how does an individual grieve thoroughly for a friend? Historically, friends support the chief mourner and family members. Friends are told that their grief must not compete with or overshadow the grief of the family. This "family first" expectation motivates many friends to ignore their own grief and the needs of others in the friendorbit to concentrate on the needs of family members. Smith argues that friends may be so busy doing grief that they fail to honor their own grief.
