Don’t tell someone to get over it. Help them get through it.

When you can’t look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark.

Being genetically related doesn’t make you family. Love, support, trust, sacrifice, honesty, protection, acceptance, security, compromise, gratitude, respect and loyalty are what make you family.

Sometimes you just need to talk about something—not to get sympathy or help, but just to kill its power by allowing the truth of things to hit the air.

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer someone else up.

Be there. Be open. Be honest. Be kind. Be willing to listen, understand, accept, support, and forgive. This is what it means to love.

Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.

People don’t always need advice. Sometimes all they really need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to understand them.

Support your friends. Listen to their ideas. Go to their events. Share their posts. Celebrate in their victories and remind them of their importance after their failures. A little support can go a very long way in someone’s life.
