Pass on the words you’d like to hear.

I think many people find it hard when it comes to expressing their emotions to others.

You only have to gaze around the aisles of a greeting card shop to get a feel for this.

It seems as though there’s a pre-printed message for just about any set of circumstances

New baby? There’s a card for that

Changing your job? One for that too

Passed an exam? Yep, there’s a card.

What about cards for people who are ill or sick?

Sure, there are Get Well cards, but these tend to be geared towards physical- rather than emotional-illness.

But this is a shame

There needs to be a ‘Sorry to hear you’re not feeling so great’ range of cards.

Of course you could always write a message like this in a blank card, but that seems to be rather flying in the face of the fact that loads of people buy the pre-messaged type of card because they really don’t know what to say.

And actually that’s probably a fairly good mirror of how people are in real life.

When someone’s down, so many just don’t know what to say.

You can break this cycle though.

If you’re the type of person who’s liable to periods of feeling bleak, you probably know the kind of things you’d like someone to say to you in a card.

It’s often enough to know that someone’s thinking of you.

So when you’re not low but someone else is, pop a card in the post.

Its message? Exactly the one you’d love to hear yourself.

One thought on “Pass on the words you’d like to hear.

  1. I know you’re feeling low…what can I do to help?
    Doesn’t matter what it is…what can I do to make today easier for you?

    That’s what I would like to see in a card to me.

    It’s what I say to my other half or daughter when they are not feeling great.
