Because some people really do mean it. I do. If I didn't want to extend help, I would not say it to someone. My friends know if they need something that they can ask me and I will help them.
I'm sorry that you have having a hard time. Maybe it is time for you to try volunteering somewhere to help you get out and be with new people. If you are not on medication for your depression, you might consider seeing a doctor for something that can help you feel better.
I always mean it.
Honestly, sometimes I am not sure what I can do for a person who is grieving, upset, or in a situation that requires help. If I'm not sure what I can offer, I simply say, "Please let me know if you need anything." And I always mean it.
Thank you for asking this question because resently people are saying that just to be polite. PEOPLE, IF YOU DON'T MEAN IT, DON'T SAY IT, especially after someone has experienced a tragic death in their family or an elderly person or child who needs attention. If they come to you and you treat them like a nuisance it will do more damage so just give them a hug, tell them you are sorry and shut up!
I would tell her in apolite way that you have missed her support and you have needed her as a friend. Be calm and nice when you say it.
I would say common courtesy, but if they don't mean it; how could that be?
Because it's not polite to say **** off...
I've never said it when I didn't mean it. In fact, I usually add that I'm truly serious and leave my number when appropriate. I think sometimes though, some people don't really know what to say or to do in a given situation and that seems to be the easiest thing to say.
There are those who never think beyond themselves. I know a few of them myself. I'm sorry you had a rough time tonight . :( Hope you are better now.
I always "mean it" when I place the invite. Problem is, frequently, when somebody actually gets around to cashing that chip, it's at a terribly inconvenient time for me.
They are trying to be nice - plastic style.
Cause they're stupid and their noses are super glued to their *** holes so even if they wanted to they would have no way.
A lot of our friends are proud and don't want to "trouble" people. We have found the best thing is to make a casserole or cookies and ask when we can drop it off. My buddy across the street when they had their son they were in NICU for a week. So when i mowed my yard i fueled up and mowed his without asking otherwise he would have declined. Don't ask if? Just do something and ask i did blank when can i come over or just do something nice without asking what they need
My fiances doctor said to let him know what he can do for me even if it's personal how should I take that?
