I’m learning to appreciate people more, in words and in gestures.

Truth is, I am surrounded by people whose sorrows I can’t understand or fully comprehend.

My natural instinct is to respond and solve the problem rather than show compassion.

I am a natural born problem solver…

I’m more comfortable resolving the issue rather than providing comfort.

I’m learning to listen more and respond less.

I pray God grants me the power to truly Listen,

Be Still,

And present,

whilst someone entrusts me enough to pour out their heart.

Let them feel safe enough to drop it, like they did with their guard, knowing that’ll definitely catch it.

Also, the wisdom to understand and fully comprehend the words that they’re dying to escape gripped in the cages of their mouth.

Because a shoulder to lean is so much better than a chaotic tongue; eager to fix things, rather than hold a person who’s breaking with every breath, just praying to be held together.
