True helplessness, is not being able to make a loved one feel better. Whether it is a physical illness, or emotional state, knowing someone you care for is not feeling well, and not being able to make them feel better, is the worst.
I know just being there for them is good, but you just wish there was something more.
I’m not really experiencing this right now….not on any major scale at least, but I do remember that feeling. I guess the best thing to do is to do for them as you would want done for you….or better yet, just ask what they need/want from you.
