Do you know when your loved ones need help? Do you know when your close friend is so worried about becoming a burden that she won’t share it with you? New situations can be intimidating, but if you have the support of family and friends, the burden becomes more bearable. When a friend comes to mind, call or text them. Get in touch with your children and ask them how they are doing. While giving advice can give others new ways to approach a problem, giving advice when they are not welcome can make things worse.
