This story was shared many years ago in a Depression Bipolar Support Alliance self-help group and repeated back to me the other day. This touched me so much that the next meeting, I surprised the spokesperson with just that; a genuine heartfelt sympathy and get well card.

To me, it's the attentive listening, the well-intentioned actions, and the overwhelming empathy which matters most.
