Dealing with the death of a loved one is hard enough. But it’s so much worse when people, with all the best of intentions, tell you that it happened “for a reason” or that the deceased is in “a better place.” Atheists don’t buy into those tropes.
According to a user on Reddit, when a friend’s husband recently died, she didn’t want to deal with any more of those comments. She joked about how might just put up a sign asking people not to say those things.
I love it. If anything, she needs a bigger sign since there are so many more phrases she didn’t include.
