Are you a fixer? When someone you love hurts, do you try to soothe or remove their pain?

 

This morning I was reminded by a precious wounded client that it’s often more helpful and loving to simply be with them in the moment and listen.

 

“If I … knew all about what is going to happen in the future, knew everything about everything, but didn’t love others, what good would it do? … I would still be worth nothing at all without love.” 1 Cor 13:2 TLB

 

Who listens gently to you?
