This is a question we need to ask ourselves during our waking hours each day.
Be careful what you think, your life is shaped by your thoughts or where the mind goes the body follows are very familiar proverbs.
Are you controlling your thoughts or are your thoughts controlling you? This is another question we can ask ourselves.
It is very important for us to remember at all times that life is all about choices. This amazing revelation will help each of us to take those responsible life choices or decisions.
However, we cannot deny the fact that as humans we are often overwhelmed with the flow of life itself. We need an understanding and empathetic ear and a non-judgemental heart.
We certainly do not need advice at this point in time.
We just want a hearing.
Do you know that people like you and me can become desperate and lose all hope when that one empathetic ear is missing or that non-judgemental heart is unavailable!
Above all, is there someone who will be there and yet not be there? Someone who steps in like an angel when you need a listening ear. Someone who may not say even a word!
Is that even possible?
Can anyone really listen for may be even an hour or more and yet not interject with their advice or solutions? Yes, that may be the toughest and it cannot happen without training and experience.
The truth is — there is that person.
All that you need to do is reach out to that safe space where what you share is respected and protected.
The miracle that happens is that when you have spoken, and someone who cares about you listens, you feel less desperate and less overwhelmed capable of taking the right decision.
