What do you do when you see someone you love is hurting? When you see them struggle?
The very best thing you can do is to maintain a consistent message of love and understanding. Listen when they are ready to share and respect their choices. Their choices may not line up with what you think or feel is best, but the #1 thing to remember is, it’s their life not yours and that means it’s not your choice.
Tend to your own happiness and be an example. Look at your own self and ask yourself if you’ve always made the “right” decision the first go round. Grant the same compassion you’d like to receive when you’re dealing with one of your challenges.
Allow space for loved ones to feel their vulnerabilities and offer words of acceptance, encouragement and support. Provide fertile ground for massive growth and watch the world change right before your eyes.
