How to show someone you deeply care?

It’s incredibly simple, and incredibly hard at the same time: Show empathy and listen.

Don’t compare whatever’s happening to your loved one with something that may have happened to you or someone you know.

Don’t say you know exactly how they feel, everyone’s experience is different.

Don’t try to change the subject, unless they invite you to change the subject.

Try to understand them. Cry with them. Sympathise with their anger.

If your loved one is grieving, share a beautiful memory about the person they’ve lost.

Let them know they’re in the presence of unspoken love. Yours. Not all caring needs words.

Just you being there, is often enough. You, are often enough.
