Offering Comfort (The Daily OM Publication)

By Penny:  Here's something that was emailed to me today from "The Daily OM" ........"Offering Comfort......... When offering comfort to somebody, their only real need is to have you be in the present moment with them. Sometimes it is difficult to see someone we love struggling, in pain, or hurting.  What is truly comforting for another is not having someone try to fix them or their problems, but to just be there for them. Should we begin to feel the urge arise to offer advice or repair a situation. Even though we may want to do more, we do not have to do anything other than just be a good friend. The more we are attuned to what our loved ones are feeling, the more capable we are of truly giving what is best for them in their hour of need. Keeping things simple helps us give the part of ourselves that is capable of the greatest amount of compassion—open ears and an understanding heart."
