Zen Sympathy Messages


Basics You Should Expect When Picking Words For Sympathy

When someone dies, people often give greeting cards that contain condolences and prayers. However, while these cards may adequately send along a person's sympathies, you may wish to write down or choose your own condolences to express better your sentiments. As you choose sympathy quotes for the occasion, however, you may want to remember some basic criteria to make your quest more successful.

It might be suggested that you let your own feelings of grief guide you in this selection process. When people fail to feel anything toward the recipient or the death, they may choose impersonal sentiments or fail to acknowledge the passing at all. However, when you are in mourning, you may find it easier to choose a quote that expresses the depth of the loss better.

With that, you may rely on a quote from a religious book or a prayer you know to let the recipient know of your condolences. When your family or your group of friends abides by a certain religious practice, a prayer or passage from the text you follow may adequately say what you are feeling. It may also be well received.

Another suggestion would be to avoid attempts at being funny. Your friend or relative may love humor any other time of the year. However, a death in the family may be ill timed to be funny or try out new humor. You might be reminded to avoid humorous expressions in your letter or card.

Similarly, mentioning how the deceased actually died could be something that turns out to be regrettable. Many individuals in mourning wish not to recall the circumstances that caused their loss. Mentioning it in your expressions of grief could be inappropriate.

By keeping these suggestions in mind, you may find it easier to choose sentimental expressions of grief in a time of mourning. Because etiquette might call for you to show your condolences, you may want to give a card or note that has appropriate words included. These tips may help you choose the best quotes for the occasion.
