I kept on nodding on these words. My heart and mind completely agree! Sometimes, no matter how much we want to help fix a problem, the only and most compassionate thing we can do is just listen. We utter one word and we are at risk of worsening the situation. Sometimes, the touch of our hands or the warmth of a hug is enough to let the other know “I am here.” To turn things around completely. Sometimes, the greatest gift we can give is our presence.
Thank you for this wonderful piece. Cheers!
