Best Encouraging Words For a Friend Feeling Down
30 best small things to say to someone who is feeling down and depressed:
If you need a friend….. (and mean it)
You are important to me.
I can’t really fully understand what you are feeling, but I can offer my compassion.
I listen to you talk about it, and I can’t imagine what it’s like for you. I just can’t imagine how hard it must be.
I’m sorry you’re in so much pain. I am not going to leave you. I am going to take care of myself so you don’t need to worry that your pain might hurt me.
I understand your pain and I empathize.
You have so many extraordinary gifts–how can you expect to live an ordinary life?
If the human brain were simple enough to understand, we’d be too simple to understand it.
We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through.
God does not play dice with the universe.
May the strength of the past reflect in your future.
Hey, you’re not crazy!
All I want to do know is give you a hug and a shoulder to cry on..
Don’t say anything, just hold my hand and listen while I cry.
When all this is over, I’ll still be here (if you mean it) and so will you.
It will pass, we can ride it out together.
I love you (if you mean it).
Do you want a hug?
I’m not going to leave/abandon you.
You’re not alone in this.
I love you!
