What do you do when you don't know what to do? When you want to support and be there, but no matter what you do it can't be enough?
What do you do when you want to support, but no matter how hard you try, you cannot figure out a way that would be support?
What do you do?
Words unformed. Actions uncompleted. It's all too complex to figure out.
What do you do, when no matter your actions, they won't be enough for the emotions? When no matter what you do, you cannot portray what you want to portray, and whatever you do, you cannot fit what they are going through?
What do you do when you want to be there, but you can't even figure out a way to reply?
What do you do when you want to and you can't figure out how?
Figuring out how is so complicated there's so much understanding needed to know what to do. There's needing to know how people reply, how to calm someone down, and what helps when they need help. There's needing to know how to show, how to make people realize what you think, when your mind is protecting yourself from the overwhelming onslaught of the emotions showing their full strength. There's needing to know what to do, what to say, and what the reactions will be.
Wanting, caring, feeling a need, doesn't mean that I know what to do.
So in the end, an emoticon, a lolcat, or even joint monologues, are the actions of someone who cares, but cannot figure out the actions to show it.
Because something that helps, is something that helps, something that says that I know and I feel is something that says that, and it doesn't matter if some think my way is lesser, it matters that I help.
I'll collect up cute cat pictures for those in need. I've figured out my way.
