Stop Saying Everything Will Be Okay

When someone tells you they’re feeling blue, they rarely want to hear it’ll all work out. They can already find fake optimism inside a Hallmark card.

And it won’t make them feel any better.

When someone’s facing hardships, all they really want is not to feel alone. 

To feel seen, heard, and supported.

So what the person whose world is falling apart wants more than anything is a friend.

Stop handing out platitudes. And simply be there when they need you.
