When people have a lot of wounds and pain bottled up inside, they need a way to get it out.
Some people don’t have anybody they believe cares about them or they’ve been hurt so badly that they struggle to trust anyone.
If you will step up and show them a heart of compassion and be their friend by providing a listening ear, you can help them get the heavy load off their chest.
It’s not about being a counsellor or having all the answers to their questions. Just be willing to listen. Take time to show you’re concerned for them!
