What does support sound like to you?
When offering support, I believe that it's very important for us to listen attentively, be kind and empathetic, create a space in which the person opening up to us feels safe, and be careful to not react in a way that makes them feel invalidated. But I admit that it can still be quite tricky to convey your support in words. I came across this interesting image offering a couple of suggestions and I wanted to share it here.
This is definitely not an exhaustive list! And some of these lines might convey varying levels of support to different people here. Which is why I want to ask you all - What does support sound like to you?
