How To Support A Loved One In Need
Open your heart for them. Empty your mind and hands for them. Offer them your presence, your free love. Offer them a deep listening, a witnessing. They might not need now your tried and tested advice.
They might not need your most brilliant problem solving solutions.
The might just need you to sit there with them and allow them to be themselves. It’s ok to be in pain.
When you know that in your own heart you will
offer them a most powerful medicine of being. It’s ok to not know.
When you know that deep in your own heart you will
offer them a most precious gift of being. It’s ok to be forged together by the vulnerability of this moment.
To ask: How can be I be there for you?
What would support you best right now? Life can be so unexpected, tricky, you might say even unfair.
We can’t always know what’s the best thing to do.
When we’re together in this uncertain space something expands in the inner rooms. Cry with them. Feel with them. Be silent with them. Hope with them. Be open with them. Breath with them.
