Last week my friend lost a close friend of hers. It was unexpected and traumatic.
Talking to her today and trying to figure out what to say was really hard. I never know what to say in those situations. I want to be reassuring and caring but I don’t know how to express it. I tried to listen and let her say what she needed to say. Afterwards, I left the conversation feeling like I didn’t really help.
I guess there really isn’t a good way to respond to that situation. I finally decided that all I can do is be there. To show her, I love her and care. I offered her a warm place to fall and to cry. I offered my friendship and love. I think sometimes that is all that is needed.
Go hug someone today. You never know who might need it.Follow me on Social Media!
