5 Ways to Help People Who Are Hurting
Listen to them
Sometimes, people just need someone to listen to them. They may not need advice or a solution, they just need someone to hear them out. So, if you know someone who is hurting, make sure to take the time to listen to them.
After you have listened to the person, offer them your support. This could be in the form of a hug, words of encouragement, or simply being there for them. Sometimes, just knowing that someone is there for them can make all the difference.
Help them find resources
If the person is struggling with something specific, see if you can help them find resources that can help. This could be a therapist, a support group, or anything else that might be helpful for them.
Encourage them to talk about their feelings
People need to express their emotions, and you can encourage the person to do this healthily. This could be through journaling, talking to a friend, or anything else that might help them.
Help them take care of themselves
When someone is going through a tough time, they may not have the energy to take care of themselves. So, you can help by doing things like cooking for them, taking them on walks, or doing anything else that might help them.
If none of these feel right…
It’s okay if none of these feel like the right thing to do in a given moment. The most important thing is that you are there for the person, and that you show them that you care. Sometimes, just being present can make all the difference. Thank you for being a source of support and love!
