Insensitive comment but this time it was me who said it :(
I feel awful. I know how many of us received insensitive and down right rude comments with our losses. Today I said one of my own...I was talking to this women in my bootcamp class and she was telling me about her SN daughter that she adopted. Basically she told me all the great milestones she has reached and all of the things she was advocating for her that hadn't been done before. After talking I said "wow she is sure it lucky to have you!" As soon as I said it I knew it wasn't the right thing to say. She stopped talking and said, "well it goes both ways you know". I quickly said, "yes your lucky to have her too" but I feel awful.
I hope I didn't come across as bad as it sounds :( I simply meant that she has done so many wonderful things for her daughter but I realize it could be taken another way....especially because she has special needs.
She seemed ok with my follow up statement but geez...talk about feeling like a jerk.
