A conversation between Stranger and Corresponding

I am sad. I recently had a loss.
I have also had a loss,

some years ago.
Grief is hard.
Let me console you with what a good friend said to me.
Why? Those words may not be appropriate to me.
The words are universal.
Yes, but grief is personal.
Besides, we have just met.
You're right.
I will let my sympathy,
suit your need, not mine.
