Imagine writing a friend an encouragement letter
to express your sympathy during a certain ordeal - death, for example - Within your long
words of encouragement you find yourself writing
about how stupid you felt crying over your lost cousin or dog in front of your boyfriend. Yes! Some
people can write something like that.
There is no better way to learn that practice;
however, in this case practice can be detrimental as there are no mice to test your skills on
before applying them on actual people. So the best thing to do is to find a mentor or buy a book to
teach you how to write the best encouragement letter .

getting feedback is commenting and offering help in areas where you are most comfortable
Being able to express your condolences can help
show that you care and are not only sympathetic but are truly empathetic to what the person is
going through. Below we share a few tips on how to write an encouragement letter.
Think about the encouragement words you want
The good thing about writing as compared to
speaking is that you have the time to construct your sentences well. You can write and re-write
until you feel like you have said what is in your heart. Remember that when you are trying to
encourage, you must first show that you understand the situation and you do not take it
The person needs to be assured that you really do
understand. The second thing to do here is to then offer yourself in terms of availability. Let the
person know that you are there for him or her and can call on you if they need someone to talk
You must show the person that you truly care. Do
not make your encouragement letter come off as a template letter pulled from a list of sample
letters. Show that it is you writing and that you know exactly what happened and how the person
must be feeling. Do not, however, be too sentimental and detailed about the actual ordeal. Simply
write enough to show you know and truly share the pain or disappointment.
Be positive and hopeful
This is not about false promises but people in
grief or pain need to be told that it is going to be alright in time. Do not tell them they will
get over it just like that but find the right words like, time is a healer -maybe that's too gushy
but something like that. If the person believes in God do use it often in the letter.
Some of the thing to look out for include,
avoiding clichés like "it's all in God's hands now", "things happen for a reason" etc, do not say
what you do not mean and keep your timing for sending the letter of encouragement right.
Do not send it too late or too early especially if the person is still busy sorting out the ordeal
and won't have time to sit and read your
words of encouragement.
Letters can still
be used to communicate even these days.
