Give a person time to process information before offering to help them. Let them know you’re there for them, but also acknowledge that they need to prepare or adjust themselves mentally regarding whatever they’re going through. That is sometimes a process that they need to experience on their own before feeling comfortable enough to get outside help.

Give them the space necessary to heal.
