Wishing Someone Well—Some Suggestions on What to Say

When someone we know or love is going through a hard time, it can be difficult finding the right words to comfort them. People react differently to stress and trauma, and you don’t want to say something that will make the person more upset. Even if you have the best of intentions, you can say the wrong thing, not know it and cause the person even more heartache. But one thing you should keep in mind is that old cliché, “It’s the thought that counts,” is a cliché for a reason. If you mean well and truly want to send some comforting thoughts to the person who’s experiencing some type of sadness or stress, you really can’t go wrong no matter what you say.

Current Catalog can help you send some words of well wishes to someone on your mind. We have a large variety of get well greeting cards, so you’re sure to find one or more that you really like and fit the circumstances perfectly. Sometimes you have to send a get well card even when the chances for healing are not that good. If someone you know has undergone surgery or treatment for cancer or a terrible automobile accident, sometimes “Get Well Soon” just doesn’t work.

Tips for Get Well Card Messages

  • Get well notes need not be long and can even be just a couple of sentences.
  • Always consider the seriousness of the situation. It is not acceptable to include anything humorous when someone is suffering a grave illness.
  • Funny get well cards or messages are perfectly acceptable for non-serious injuries such as a broken bone or minor procedure performed on an outpatient basis.
  • Don’t be overly dramatic and don’t use flowery language that doesn’t sound like you. Just be yourself, be sincere and be succinct.
