What do you tell someone who’s going through a divorce? How do you comfort them? Do you just hug them and say nothing at all. Will that be enough for them? Will they know you’re on their side, that you feel for them, even if you don’t say it out loud?
What if it’s someone you grew apart from. Someone you were once close with, but now feels like a stranger. Someone you grew up with, who’s family, but has been estranged from you. Will a hug be enough for them? Will it comfort them and help them through it all? Will it tell them everything you want to say, but can’t find the words for?
Sometimes all you need is a hug. Just so you know that there’s someone on your side. Someone who wants to help you get rid of the heartbreak and the pain. But sometimes a hug isn’t enough. How will I know though? I may not be able to find the right words to comfort them, but they can’t tell me they’re hurting either. All words fail. That is why time is needed. Time to heal. For everyone.
