Our expert says:
People generally mean to be kind. But in many circumstances, they don't realize how unhelpful or even hurtful their kindly intended comments may be. Recognize the intended kindness ( and to some degree they may be reacting to how THEY think they might take such news ) rather than letting the comments upset you. It is admirable and helpful if you can accept the facts of life as they turn up, and such acceptance is usually more useful in the long-term than basing one's reactions on unlikely hopes for miracles. If miracles do happen, as they do ocasionally, of coruse they are generally easy enough to accept.
