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.
