It is not always easy to find the right words to write inside a get well soon card, especially if it is a bad illness.
There are a lot of things to consider when writing the card. Firstly, it is important to know if the illness or injury is a bad one. If it is, it’s important to be comforting and supporting but not patronising. We expect they already have a hundred people asking how they are every day.
If the illness is not bad and simply just due to a small illness or small operation for example. This means that you could possibly joke about it and show a more happy and funny side.
Although your recipient might like to see a positive and more happy side in either type of situation. It’s just important to take their situation into account.
We don’t want you to be sitting, with the get well soon card in front of you without any words in it because you are overthinking for what to say. We want you to destress and have a snoop through some of our suggestions for what to write in a get well card.
