Today, I saw an incest survivor commenting on a post on my Facebook page, clearly distraught and upset by comments advising her what to do (which was said from a place of kindness, but upset her more).
I was to be able to offer empathy and thankfully choose the right words to validate, not tell her what to do, and provide some comfort.
And I was in tears as I wrote it, and I truly do wish I could take away the terrible pain and suffering so many people endure.
I cannot give advice, but if I can offer words that comfort, I am so glad.
