Yep, great tips from Kate. Something that is helpful to me in situations where it could feel like I’m exerting so much energy for/on someone I don’t particularly like, is to reframe it as giving my energy to the people I *do* like as a gift and an act of love. You don’t have to like your FIL at all to want to support your husband and the rest of his family through their impending grief. Just keep thinking of this time as an opportunity to express love for your husband in the act of just being there for him – listening to him, giving him space to work through the complicated emotions.
