6 Ways you can help someone with Anxiety/Depression?

attentive-listening-dogYou can assist and perhaps even inspire others simply by being present and listening to what they are saying as well as what is not being said. Being an attentive listener while maintaining an open mind is helpful to someone experiencing anxiety/depression.

As someone who has suffered with anxiety/depression, I know the healing power of compassion and attentive listening. Sometimes listening is all someone needs to gain clarity needed to create positive change in their life.

 

Here are six (6) ways you can genuinely help someone work through anxiety/depression.

  1. Let your them know you are willing to listen to how they feel.
  2. Give your unconditional encouragement and support; compassion and attention.
  3. Remember their truth is just that…THEIR TRUTH. You may not agree with their choices but always respect them.
  4. Offer advice only if they ask for it. If they are not open to receiving your wisdom, you may make them feel worse about what they are going through.
  5. Never, I repeat never tell anyone “just get over it”; those words are so disrespectful! Just because you are not experiencing what they are or may handle things differently does not mean what they are feeling should be minimized.
  6. Most importantly, be honest with them if you feel like professional help is required to help them turn things around.

Cheers to lending a helping hand…

 

 

As always, Love, Peace & Blessings…

You feel as though nothing can stop you from doing or getting what you want. Your inner power is at its peak and you will not be deterred.
