“People who are hurting don’t need Avoiders, Protectors, or Fixers. What we need are patient, loving witness. People to sit quietly and hold space for us. People to stand in helpful vigil to our pain.”
― Glennon Doyle Melton, Love Warrior: A Memoir
Keeping silent to keep the peace comes at to high a price. Let us listen to each other. Listening takes courage, patience, grace, humility. Listening is for BadAsses. I hope to become a better listener….and surrender my need too be heard.
