Social media can be a place where some people feel safe sharing the ups and downs of their personal life. The relative anonymity of the platform can create – even encourage – sharing of intimate details.
But if you think a friend or acquaintance is reaching out for support, offering kind encouragement can help them feel supported and heard. So here are three caring thoughts you could share.
- Taking small, baby steps each day matters! So keep going, and don’t give up!
- What you are going through may feel daunting, but remember how many challenges you’ve already faced and endured. You can do this!
- Hope is a powerful emotion. Surround yourself with positive people who care about you and focus on what matters most.
