Please don’t, especially if that person is TELLING you that they are hurting.
If you’ve gone through something traumatic, like the loss of a loved one or have been through some sort of abuse, you know how painful it is to feel like you’re battling the fight alone. This is why I think many times it’s the people who have suffered the most who are also the most compassionate, loving, kind and giving. They know how it feels to go through a very rough time and they know how every single gesture of support matters.
We don’t need to experience excruciating pain in order to understand the importance of having a few people by our side, do we?
