10 Ways To Be Supportive To Someone in Emotional D

Posts: 685

Enoughalready shared this on another thread. I'm worried that it might have gotten lost in the long, long discussion on that thread. I hope she does not mind me reposted it on its own. It's good information. be-supportive-to-someone-in-emotional-distress/

This is a great list! I especially like number 6! It was so discouraging to me, when I was really brought low from chemotherapy, to be told to cheer up and find the bright side. I need most to hear number 7--I want to HELP folks in distress, but I do understand that unsolicited advice when you are in distress can seem more harmful than helpful.
