There are also a number of things that you can do to help your love ones overcome this very difficult personal struggle.
1st – Be empathetic, It doesn’t mean you have to agree with your loved one’s behavior when you show them compassion. It means you are willing to listen and try to understand their perspective on the situation.
2nd – Make sure to focus on the big picture. Ask about goals; find out what is important to your loved one and how, together, you can meet these goals.
