  1. Depends on the kind of pain I guess, but my first thought is – by being there for them. If you care about someone – show it. Take the first step, actively reach out, but be prepared to in for the long run. Let’s be kind to people!

  2. I have struggled with this the last few months, a dear friend is in so much pain over the sudden loss of her husband and I have felt so hopeless in that I can’t seem to help her overcome her grief. I guess what I have learnt is that pain is a process that we all go through at various times of our lives, and just being there to support or comfort a friend in need may not sweeten the pain, but it will definitely help.

  3. I think it is true. I try to reach out and encourage others when I can. I know it means so much when I am on the receiving end of encouragement. Sometimes just listening is helpful.
