I’m learning that when the worst happens, there isn’t usually much you can do.
Be it an earthquake that rattles your Uncle’s house, a friend’s friend who suddenly commits suicide, or your sister who has a terrible experience at University … by the time you find out about it, the deed is already done. It’s happened.
You can’t reverse the event, change it, make it go away with large sums of money or flowers or the most well-intentioned platitudes.
All you can really do is show up.
