    support is very helpful in managing stress or life events such as the death of a loved one. Hence, this experience has influenced my response to the concept highlighted by Glanz & Viswanath (2015). Even though I believe that everything happens for a reason, I found this hard to believe when my very close friend drowned while I was in college. At the time, it was very difficult to see the blessings in my life and it was hard to appreciate the social support I had. All I felt was pain, and I had a…
