How do you truly be there for someone?

How do you truly be there for someone?

Parts of oneself should be cut off and given away. Fill in the blanks with pieces of loved ones. Be present for someone by investing in them. You care because they are a part of you and you understand what they are going through. They will feel your love even if you can't physically be together.

Show your support by listening without judgment, encouraging to reach their goals, and providing distraction when needed. Give genuine compliments that speak to their personality instead of just their looks; it will make a big difference in their day. Spend time with them in activities they enjoy such as going for walks or visiting museums. Provide physical affection such as hugs or kisses when appropriate. Let them know you are there for them anytime on the phone or via email.

Don't expect too much from someone who has lost parts of themselves. It is not their responsibility to fill the gap. Let them live and let go.

Remember, everyone needs to be cared for come what may. We are all connected at the soul level and when one person is hurting, we all suffer. Show your love by being there for others. It doesn't matter how small the act of kindness, it all adds up over time.
