When comfort is someone's top need, it's very important that others respond to your hurt with words, feelings, and a gentle touch.

You might feel loved when others put their arm around you if you're feeling sad.  You may like it when loved ones sit quietly beside you and are just "with you" during a difficult time.  You even feel cared for when someone cries with you.

You might like to hear these words:  "I'm sad for you.  I'm so sorry that you are going through this," or, "I know you are really disappointed.  I feel a lot of compassion for you."
