tissue rule

So, this morning in sermon I learned the tissue rule. When someone is crying, wait until they look for a tissue before you offer them one.

If you just offer them a tissue, it implies that you are uncomfortable with their display of emotions, which, possibly they need to express.

By letting them go through their grieving, you are being supportive of them.
