Often when we’re comforting loved ones, all that we want to do is take their pain away.
It’s such a natural desire to help those we love in need.
But there are many times when it is necessary for people to go through pain to fully learn and emerge stronger than ever.
Remember not to enable someone who needs help with a problem.
Support them in finding a solution.
The next time a loved one is going through a difficult period, think about how you can support them instead of fixing them.
You can’t resolve other people’s issues, but you can sit with them and share the burden of their pain, thereby lightening it. (Not my words.)
