What would you tell someone suffering?
What would be your first word?
Would you tell them to hang in there or tell them to suck it up followed by a curse word?
How would you engage a person with a broken soul and a weary spirit?
What would you do when you can feel the hurt before you can see it?
They need answers.
What do you say?
Is it alright not to know?
Sometimes you can say a lot without speaking.
Acknowledgement is a shared gesture.
Empathy is the perfect remedy to heal an open wound fast.
Understating is the reassurance to the ailing.
It lest them know that the pain won't last.
