Help often comes in tangible ways. But just as prevalent is the kind of help given where nothing tangible is given or received. It’s felt. Emotional help, lending a listening ear, and just telling someone: “You’re doing it right”, can have amazing effects. It doesn’t need to be anything more than that, and it’s helpful. It doesn’t need to include money, suggesstions, critique, or even physical presence.
Helping someone doesn’t mean anything physical or tangible. You have helped someone when they feel you have helped. That’s it. Ain’t it great?
