Over 50 words to comfort someone in joy or sorrow

Over 50 words to comfort someone in joy or sorrow

At Taylor Lee Comfort, we’re all about comfort in every aspect of our lives⁠—in our homes, what we wear, self care—and, most importantly, how we take care of each other. 

We believe in comforting sorrow but also joy. 

Sometimes, it’s hard to know what to say. So, we’ve compiled a list of comforting words for any occasion.
