    This is very true. Take the time out to ask how people are doing. They won’t mind. I appreciated it when I had my problems around 5/6 years ago. Show each other kindnesses.

    And if you do have a problem don’t be scared to ask for help. It took me a while to admit what was wrong with me. The good news is you can get better.

  • Yes, when you feel isolated, that sort of genuine empathy really helps. You are ashamed and scared and feeling that someone understands and gets is a massive relief .

    Our party has a leader who really gets this, as did the previous one .As doe Norman Lamb in all he does for these issues.

    Terrific point Tim makes , ask someone how they are and mean it, stick around to find out, that is very well put Tim !

    Far too few emphasise the personal Liberal qualities of human individual , as well as political , genuine understanding. A politics for people is about the person.
