It’s hard to see people you care about struggle and feel bad, I think we can all agree on that. What really gets me isn’t their situation though, however horrible, but rather when there is no help to be had. Some things won’t be fixed by kind words or just being there, they need the kind of help only a professional is capable of giving. But when that doesn’t happen, or when that’s not available, what do you do then? I hate watching from the sidelines, it’s such a helpless place to be.
Be happy for all the good things in your life, even if you feel bad or are struggling in other areas. It’s the only thing anyone of us can do, really.
