When Your Friend is Suffering….

When Your Friend is Suffering….

Do Not Say:

  • “I know how you feel” – as close as you may be, you don’t.
  • “This is God’s plan” – Can be confusing, unhelpful or enraging.
  • “If you need anything, give me a call” – puts undue pressure on the one already suffering. Just do it.
  • Saying nothing – probably the worst, most painful.
