    The Israeli tragedy and our feelings #Emotions #Sadness #tragedy #processing #Chatspace #Whattosay

    There was a uniquely horrific episode in Israel Thursday night. I feel like regardless of a person’s political or religious affiliation one has to feel deeply sad and empathetic of the bereaved families. So many young men. So many children. So many people who will never return to their families and so many who will never be the same. A time like this displays the best and worst of humanity. From the optician who is replacing glasses for free to the people who set up tables with food and drink at the road side.
    The worst of humanity I shall not repeat. There are three things to say. I’m sorry for your loss , how can I help and where can I donate.

    Is sometimes the only thing folks need to hear when posting/ sharing something personal... at least that’s how I feel.

    Please don’t tell me...

    Sometimes well-meaning phrases like “stay positive,” “feel better soon” or “but you don’t seem sick” can be incredibly invalidating. That’s why we want to know what messages you wish others would stop saying so we all know how to better support each other. 💬

    ⭐️ Bonus points if you tell us a phrase you’d actually like to hear.

    A good friend of mine, has recently opened up to me about her struggle with bulimia. Having never dealt w/ bulimia I am not sure what to avoid saying?

    What do you tell people who are going through hard times ? (Who are in a psychiatric hospital)

    So this one’s difficult for me.
    I’ve been in a psychiatric hospital a few times myself. And now a girl who’s in my class is there too. And it’s hard for me to say the “right” things. Any tips ?
