people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.

What do we live for, if it is not
to make life less difficult for each other?
- George Eliot


Generally, your greatest service to someone in their time of trouble, sorrow, or confusion, is your comfort. Take the time to listen to their troubles and concerns with patience, kindness, and empathy, but without offering unsolicited advice or suggestions. Your kindly hand on their shoulder, supportive hug, and patient listening are often the greatest gifts you can offer.
