Everyone you know has a problem you don’t know about and could use some comfort.
In this era of growing loneliness despite 24/7 connectivity, we have somehow lost the simple art of practicing comfort — of comforting each other through everyday problems, struggles and crisis. In our digital world of high emotions, we tend to confuse empathy for comfort.
Comfort is more than sympathy or understanding, it is connecting with a person in pain in a way that they know someone cares. Most people find making that comfort connection awkward. We tend to avoid that awkwardness. But there are experts among us that instinctively know what to do. If you’ve watched a dog with someone who is suffering, you’ve witnessed it.
This is where Paws to Comfort begins. It is a beautiful, practical handbook with simple tools and a framework to inspire anyone to learn the skill of comfort and overcome the awkwardness of comforting someone in pain.
