Why you should never say “maybe it’s for the best”

Has a friend or relative or someone dear to you lost something or someone special to them?

Do you want to comfort them and think that saying “maybe it’s for the best” might help them see things from another perspective?

Please don’t say it. Not ever.

It’s tempting if a person you care about is grieving, to try and help them through it by finding reason in their loss. To provide some sense in a senseless situation. But it doesn’t help. It’s never for the best.
