“Vulnerability is the only bridge to build connection” – Brene Brown
We’re taught that our value to others is to fix their problems, give advice, or cheer them up. But when we offer advice before connecting with someone’s feelings, we can leave that person feeling unheard.
With kindness. Warm baths, belly rubs, and cups of tea. I have given it a comfortable space. Maybe it needs to understand me the same way I need to understand it.
I’m only asking these questions because I don’t want my time being wasted.
“Did you have any victories you want to share?”
One thing you don’t realize is how beautiful you are, on the inside and out. One thing you don’t realize is the perfect imperfection you are, powerful in ways that cannot be explained.
I wonder why the group of girls that just walked past me started laughing — even though chances are it wasn’t about me at all. I wonder why some stranger has been staring at me — even if they only glanced.
Our pain is a pain we bring upon ourselves through our own misplaced questioning. The pain
of our own wrong asking. It is the pain of avoidance.
Can you answer this??
