Welcome to Simple Sympathy. Simple Sympathy was born out of the desire to know what to do and how to help. I know how overwhelming it can be to express sympathy. It seems like the more we care, the more overwhelming and difficult it is.
It’s not that expressing sympathy will ever be easy, but their are very simple ways of offering comfort. In fact some of the most important things we do are actually very simple seemingly insignificant things.
People don’t always need advice. Sometimes all they really need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to understand them.
It’s the simple things we do to express sympathy actually mean the most. Things like offering a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, a comforting card, a phone call, a song, a poem, a thoughtful gift, a prayer, or simply giving a hug.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.Leo Buscaglia
Things That Get in the Way
When we start to make it complicated by trying to fix things or provide explanations we get into trouble.
This is when we are most likely going to put our in our mouth, as the expression goes.
Simple sympathy is all about doing the little things that really make a difference.
