Instead, the most powerful thing you can do is acknowledge. To literally say the words:
I acknowledge your pain. I’m here with you.
Note that I said with you, not for you. For implies that you’re going to do something. That’s not for you to enact. But to stand with your loved one, to suffer with them, to do everything but something is incredibly powerful.
