THINGS TO DO AND NOT DO WHEN SOMEONE’S HURTING

When you’re hurting
there’s something healing 
to know that others are hurting 
for you and with you.
It’s comforting when someone says,
”I understand.”
And they take the time
to be there for you
in a supportive way.
and you know they’re sincere.
BUT
when someone’s hurting
PLEASE......PLEASE don’t say
”Let me know if there’s anything I can do.”
That is so hollow.
Especially when there’s ALWAYS something you can do.
Always!
JUST DO IT!
It doesn’t matter how big or small it is,
JUST DO IT!
It will help the healing.
Like,
Send a thoughtful note.
Spend time with them.
Take them out for lunch.
Give them a casserole or soup.
Bake them some cookies.
Give them a book or puzzle.
Give them a gift card to a local eatery.
Shovel the snow from their driveway.
Pray for them.
It will help their healing.
And it will bless you as well.
Remember, hurting people 
often don’t want to ask for help.
Just do it.
