What do you say?
But is that the true way to respond? I've watched several friends go through unimaginable difficulties in the last few years. I've seen suffering and great strength. And I've done for them what people did for me when I most needed someone. But is that enough? I've been questioning that a lot lately. Should I have forced myself on them and done things they didn't ask me to do? I've always been a "call before you visit" kind of person. Adhering to etiquette is important to me. But is it true that if someone needs your help and you've left the door open, that they will, in fact, let you know if they need something? Or is it better to just do something for someone, whether you know they need it or not?
It's something I've been struggling about lately. I see no clear answers to this one. And that drives me more than a little bit crazy.
For now, all I can do is what I've been doing - offer myself for whatever anyone needs. I'm here if you need me.
