Today I talked. I talked and someone listened. I felt vulnerable. I felt exposed. I felt weak. But I also felt alot better once I got out what was inside me. The other person didn’t offer any advice or earth-shattering revelation. They didn’t even speak. They just listened. They allowed me to speak out words that had been swimming around my head for days and once I said them I felt better.
We talk alot about the power of the spoken word but there is as much power in the listening ear. Don’t be afraid to just listen. It’s better to say nothing than say the wrong thing just because you think you should say something.
So be that person for someone. Just let them talk and don’t feel pressure to make everything ok. Just be a shoulder.
If there’s stuff you need to say, then find that trusted person and get it out of you. If you don’t have that person then I pray that you find them because life is alot sweeter with them walking with you to your destiny.
