When someone we love is feeling challenged, sometimes the best thing we can do is to just listen. We can listen and withhold our judgment and criticism. They are not going to always do things the way we would like to see them done. We are all different and we all experience things differently. We make different decisions. That is okay.
Sometimes it is not so easy to listen without adding our opinions, but it can be very helpful. We can trust the other person will figure this out on their own. Just like we did.
Quietly breathe through the parts when you really want to add your thoughts. Give them the gift of your presence.
