  1. I didn’t relate much to Sheryl’s first book, “Lean In.” However, I really appreciate her efforts to help people deal with grief. I also thought the advice she shared about what to say to people dealing with grief was very helpful. Her interview with Katie Couric is worth a listen http://katiecouric.com/sheryl-sandberg-living-option-b/

    • I loved all the advice on what to say, which also got me thinking more about what to *generally* say to my friends to express empathy. I am by nature a problem-solver, and so have spent years trying to remind myself to be quiet and empathize rather than try to fix things!
