He is always the giver. Help reverse the role! Let him be a recipient of your kindness and generosity, too. Just because he does not talk about his heartaches and struggles doesn’t mean he does not have any. Remember, nobody is strong all the time.
In this time of pandemic, people have various concerns. Economic realities, fear of getting sick with COVID-19, domestic problems, uncertainties about the future, and feelings of isolation due to restrictions in people’s movement contribute to the growing number of people who suffer from anxiety and depression.
