Don’t Avoid. Be Brief.

I ran into a friend of mine who has had a terrible summer.

Not everyone knows about the heartbreak in her life but I know she thinks about it endlessly.

I saw her at Starbucks and gave her a hug and quietly said “I heard (the news) and I want you to know that Annie and I love you and love your family.”

It was later relayed back to me how much she appreciated that. She appreciated that I acknowledged the heartbreak and I kept it brief.

That is good advice for any situation:

Don’t avoid.

Be Brief.
