How on earth can this writer “give” permission of this sort to others. What arrogance.

I don't think this was meant as arrogance, but rather something aimed at those of us who feel we're not allowed to grieve or shouldn't. Some very proud people don't give themselves permission, or had parents who enforced a 'don't show weakness, don't cry' mentality, or are 24/7 carers and think they have to appear strong all the time. For those people, a bit of permission to let it out is a good thing. Reading that line really did help me. Think of it as helping someone give themselves permission to grieve or let out some bottled up grief.
