Here’s a thought……
If someone is stressed or depressed and you keep emailing them, calling them, messaging them saying
“Are you OK?”
“What have I done?”
YOU ARE NOT HELPING THEM!
Because what you are saying to them is really….
I have an emotional need to know what is happening
It’s not really about the depressed person is it?
You’re putting the added burden of being responsible for YOUR emotional welfare on a person who is already struggling with their own.
In future try this….
“You’re having a difficult time. I’m here whenever and however you need me”
aaaah! That’s better
