The Beauty of Words: Part XII -Comfort

So often in life, we are in need of comfort, consolation, solace in the words, hands and heart of another human being. We crave this urgently, this knowledge that someone cares, that we are not alone.

Don’t mistake me, I do not and have never deemed all-encompassing platitudes and token phrases as comforting in the least. Comfort comes in when a person cares enough to ask what is troubling you, cares enough to want to alleviate your pain, and (if actions should not suffice or simply aren’t possible) gives you, through speech, hope, courage, strength and renewed will.

This is why, especially when others are hurting, it is always best to choose your words wisely. And with love.
