Do you have family or a friend that needs you to be there? Because they are feeling low, down, maybe they are sick in some way or just need a hand. Most of us do. So. How do you behave when they need you but do not accept or want your help or support? To be there when needed, that is really important but some of the hardest things you can do. And do it right.
I think the most important thing is, as always, to listen in. Listen to the needs of the other person. What they say, but also what they do not say. Listen in as often as possible (without being too much). A balance act that too.
In my opinion it can almost not be too much if a person is in need, not feeling well or is sad, or sick. Make a short check with them now and then, but at least once a day. Ask, and listen. Or just be there, sitting together in silence or hugging them. Sometimes words are not needed, but be very clear and tell them you care and that YOU ARE THERE whenever needed. Things will be ok and you are stronger together.
Wish you the best. Take care. Namaste 🙏
