Today I wanted to ask you all for advice.
What do you do when you know your words would be of little to no help?
When they would only seem superficial because you know you’ve never went through what the other party is going through. And although you feel for them, you are unable to say ‘I understand’
You might be wondering what I mean, or not.
The truth is I’ve been going through my reader and I chanced over many fellow bloggers going through hard times.
Most of them are facing issues I am very lucky to have never faced myself, or saw happen for someone I know.
I know they wrote it so we can read it, or because simply writing made them feel better.
I read it and I am at lost for what to say.
Because honestly nothing I would say would make things easier, and it might even annoy them.
But not saying anything feels coward of me, like I am protecting myself from their reaction to my reply instead of doing it out of my heart’s feeling to show them the support they are in need of.
So I ask you,
If you happen to read a post of a major crisis in someone’s life.
Would few kind words from someone who has no idea what to say, someone who knows the words will not make a lot of difference (I know this is a bad thought coming from a writer) be a good option?
Please tell me??
