❣️Lend An Ear To A Friend❣️
Sometimes what people need most is the caring presence of a friend. Spend time listening to a friend who needs support.
Simply listening can be a supportive and caring act for someone struggling with their mental health. Although they may be nervous or intimidated about sharing their very personal experiences, by being patient, engaged, and empathetic to their situation, you can let them know that they don't have to struggle alone.
"Sometimes all a person wants is an empathetic ear; all they need is to talk it out. Just offering a listening ear and an understanding heart for their suffering can be a big comfort."
