Your post about bringing food to grieving people is totally true it's like "I love you so let me take care of keeping your body alive because I know I can't mend your heart."

Definitely. Emotional pain isn’t something you can put a band-aid on and most people aren’t therapists but most people can make a casserole or mow a lawn or just be there instead so the other person can focus on healing. 

There is a reason why we have comfort food in our vocabulary.
