So much heartache and trouble.

As I read different blogs, so many are filled with heartache, tragic situations and problems.

I've guess I've led a very sheltered life. Most all of my heartache and tragedy has been self inflicted. *S*

The thing is, as I read a posting that is sad, I want to write something to help the person ... I don't know them, but I want to make it all better. But I don't have a clue about what to say. So I generally leave without saying anything.

I'm no better verbally in real life, but in real life a hug or just being there goes a long way.

Is there a blog equivalent to a hug ... to sitting quietly, handing out the kleenex as needed?

I realize that even the perfect words won't make things all better ... but I sure wish I even had some less than perfect words that could lighten the load.

Any suggestions?

(After rereading this post, I ran to the restroom and double checked ... whew ... I DO still have balls).

It takes bigger balls to say what you did here...
Not saying how you really feel is more ball less...

I have had my share of trials and drama in a span of 10 years then I care to. But life happens. Having true friends that sat and handed out tissues and lend a shoulder are better then words.

~ Knowing when to do the above and when to speak words takes wisdom ~
