It is a shame isn’t it, that we can’t actually know what is going on with somebody unless they choose to tell us? We can only go by what they allow us see which may be a brave face or a “don’t care” attitude. This is what we respond to don’t we? Why shouldn’t we? It’s their choice isn’t it? However, it might pay us to delve just a bit deeper and be prepared to offer our help or understanding, or even just to offer to be there before making any judgements. We know how they feel as we’ve all behaved in this way occasionally ourselves haven’t we? Time to put ourselves in their shoes, which have often also been our shoes, and do what we can.
