I’m a person who likes to solve problems. I’m someone who hates to see others suffer, in physical or emotional pain.
I have struggled in the past to listen to someone with a problem without wanting to jump in with a possible solution or a positive spin to help them reframe their pain but recently the universe has sent me some challenges which have forced me to come to the realisation that we all need to learn to sit with pain.
Learning to sit with someone who is hurting is perhaps the greatest gift you can give sometimes. It’s hard (if you are like me) to hold back but when you are facing one of life’s bigger challenges sometimes just being there and being present is the best and only gift you can give.
