Supporting others through adversity the right way

Today’s video is important because it raises awareness on the importance of what we say to others currently facing adversity. When someone is suffering with mental health issues, has just found out some terrible news or is drowning in grief, the last thing they want to hear is what someone thinks they should do in their situation.

Projecting our own beliefs onto someone who is suffering can sometimes be detrimental. Telling someone how we think they should feel at times of difficulty, can be very harmful.

Always speak with caution.

    1. Thank you so much Alexis! It means a lot to hear you say that! There have been so many instances where I have felt let down by others, as well as not knowing what to say when hearing sad news..I have always found it extremely important to share my condolences with those in pain, even if the words spoken were simple but reassuring. xx
