Life is not always full of happiness. At times, we feel sad, broken and shattered and we also find it difficult to be happy. These are the times of downfall or failures in our life. When we come across a failure, we feel sad and find it very difficult to keep going with our daily routine. Our mood gets spoiled.
We do not wish to talk to a new person and we think of the failure again and again simply because it is hard to get it out of our mind. When it comes to our personal failures we can manage it because we know what actions we need to take in order to overcome the sad part.
However, when any of our dear ones experience sadness, it becomes very difficult for us to cheer them up simply because we don’t know the coping mechanism that could help them battle the failure or the sadness. Very often people resort to sending cakes online, flower bouquets, sweets, chocolates, teddies, and other gifts in order to make the person smile.
However, these efforts seldom work wonders. If you have a little brother who is feeling sad because of their personal failure and you want to help them because you love them and you truly want them to feel better then you can try some of our suggestions in order to help your little brother. These efforts can surely work wonders despite of you not being aware of the problem that is being faced by your little brother
Give them space
No matter how much we think of helping our dear ones. We must avoid intruding into the matter in the very beginning because sometimes people themselves need to understand what all is going on. You can give some space to your brother so that he can focus on the problem and think of the solution as well. Later, you may ask if he needed your help.
Lend them ears
Sometimes all we need is to lend a year to the person who is going through the problem. You can simply make your brother feel assured that they can share their thoughts with you and you won’t judge them for anything. So once your brother gets comfortable in sharing the problem, you can listen to them well then offer a solution if required.
Give them a tight hug
Sometimes all that you need to solve a person is to make them feel appreciated. So if you see your brother feeling sad about something, you can simply give them a tight hug so that they can feel a sense of comfort and relief thereby forgetting their problem. Besides that hugging also releases certain hormones that would make them feel happy.
The handwritten note
If you observe your brother being troubled with someone or something and you don’t know how to address the issue then you can do it through a handwritten note. You can note down your observations and hand them over to your brother or you can write a note to make your brother feel relaxed. You can also mention that you would be there to help them and leave the note under their pillow.
A sweet treat
We all are aware of the positive impact of sweets upon a distressed mind so you can buy birthday cakes online and offer it to your brother as a sweet treat that could help them be distracted from the problem. You can also have a conversation while enjoying the delicious cake. Besides that, you can also purchase cupcakes, chocolates or brownies for your brother.
A day out
You can take your brother for a day out and visit an amusement park and enjoy some rides over there. In addition to that, you can also ask your brother for a movie so that you guys can watch the movie together, thereby completely forgetting about the problem that is troubling your brother.
You can also enquire from your brother’s friends about the issue and ask them to help you cheer your brother up so that it becomes easier for you to uplift the mood of your brother thereby making him feel happy.
