If someone has just lost a job, what could you do or say to cheer them up?( at least 100 words )

Losing a job is one of the hardest situation in life that can lead a person to depression. It can be difficult to talk to someone who has just lost a job, and of course it is much more difficult to cheer them up.

First of all, I usually let them contact me on their own terms, because maybe they want some space or time for themselves. But I let them know that I am there if they want someone to talk about this issue with and support them.

In the next step, I offer them some fun. If they agree, I schedule some fun activities to do together, such as going to party or hiking.

In short, I try to cheer them up and be there for them to pass this tough time.

This is not a Task 2 essay; just a short essay in response to a non-IELTS question!
