When one turtle is on his back, the other doesn’t fault him for getting himself in that position and walk away. He doesn’t tell him he just needs to try harder and he doesn’t stand there giving advice. He simply walks over and helps him up in his time of need.
Of course, when dealing with a chronic condition, friends and family would most likely do the same if it were that easy. They would simply turn their loved one back onto their feet and on their way. The problem is that there is not always a quick fix, so people often get frustrated with their efforts seemingly not helping, since the issue remains.
Nonetheless, we can still assist those living with illness, pain or injury by lending an ear or a hand around the house. Just a little bit of our time and love can make a huge difference!
