There are a lot of phrases that piss off people grieving, but perhaps none so much as “I know just how you feel”. Ask someone grieving to list the most annoying things people said to them in their grief. I promise this will often be near the top of the list. It is often coupled closely with the similar, “oh this reminds me of when (insert their experience here)”. You would think people want empathy in grief, yet this common phrase doesn’t seem to do it. But why? What is the instinct to say this about? Why does it ruffle feathers?
