Wasn't sure where to put this, didn't think it was right to put it in the positive forum because I'm not exactly feeling "positive" but if a mod feels it should be moved then feel free to do so. I have been on an all time low recently, one of the lowest points of my life and these past few days I've kept myself to myself which is why I haven't been online at all. Today I went out to go and get some shopping and on the way back I walked past a seating area and I seen a woman crying. I don't like to see anyone upset so I walked over to her and asked her if she was okay and she said she was. I asked if she was sure and she burst into tears. I sat with her trying to console her and she said her friend passed away in her arms in the hospital this morning. It was clear that it hit her hard and she was still in shock because it was so recent and it also hit home with me because backk last week I heard a very good friend of mine passed away. We sat talking, I didn't go into details about myself but I said I can relate to her feelings and she was talking to me about her friends last days, how everyone knew she was going to die and no matter how much she tried to prepare herself, after the death she still wasn't prepared and at this stage I tried to hold back my tears because it was very sad, and not only that but it bought back memories of my step-mum. I sat with her for about half hour, let her cry on me and also to let out her feelings. I don't know if it helped her much, but I think she appreciated I was there for her so I guesss I'm not totally useless. As I walked home I couldn't help but cry because even though I hope I helped her it bought back a lot of sad memories about my step-mum and also my friend who I heard passed away last week. But it's okay.. as long as I helped her then it's okay.
