How do you...?

How do you help someone who doesn't want to be helped?

How do you break through their brittle protective shell and get them to understand without destroying the little reserve of strength they have left?

How do you stay positive for them when all you want to do is cry curses at the universe for their pain?

How do you bring laughter to someone who just wants to cry?

How do you protect your spirit from the verbal attacks of a wounded soul?

How do you come to terms with the fact that what you have to offer is just not good enough?

How do you not feel guilty for being happy when your loved one is in misery?

How do you know whether you should keep trying or to let all of this go?
