5. Treasure those who do make an effort to understand, and love you unconditionally
Friends, family and colleagues who show you kindness, grace and mercy, and take the time to really be with you through your time of suffering should be cherished. They are few and far between.
Do all you can to tell them how much you appreciate them, and thank God for them.
And, commit to being there for others in the same way these people have been there for you.
