Share our pain and touch our…

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

  1. So true indeed. To show concern, empathy, reach out your hand to touch someone on the back and let them know you care, perhaps say a prayer and tell them you care and you are there if they want to talk. That can mean everything to a person who is hurting. Great post David. Hugs, Joni

    1. yeah – this is something that I’ve come to feel is obvious (to me), but so many people continue trying to provide others with solutions, rather than empathy…
