When we strive to help someone during a difficult situation, many of us stop at Empathy.
While empathy allows us to truly empathize with the sufferer, it can also limit our ability to assist them because we become engrossed in their feelings.
It’s sometimes easier to be an effective supporter by taking a step back from the debilitating feelings and transitioning into Compassion, where we can take meaningful activities to aid. Supporting the suffering in solving his or her difficulties rather than solving them for them is a nice strategy to aid. Not doing anything but listening and being there might also be a nice way to assist.
