There is a guy at work, who has a hard time at home.. and when he talks to me about it.. I just am blank, I don't know what to say. I want to just hug him and tell him it's going to be alright, and I'm here for him.
But he has probably heard that before, and think I'm just another person pretending to care. But I'm not.. I just don't know what to say in situations like that.. and really.. what can you say?
You can't say anything, you just have to be there for them, and help them to keep going when they are convinced they can't go any further.
As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words.
