My co-worker weeps due to their family problems at office.
They don't seek privacy. I don't intervene because I don't think it is my place to ask about their problems when they are not willing to share.
I am uncomfortable around them when they weep and ignoring them completely makes me feel like a jerk. I don't understand how to deal with them.
Is telling the boss a solution?
Edit: My co-worker is a senior to me. A good difference of around 2 decades. Has kids of my age. It is not the same as the other question (which folks are trying to link as duplicate)
