Don’t be afraid of the silence

The right words are not always easy to come by; sometimes it is hard to know what to say. Don’t be afraid of the silence. Sometimes there is no right thing to say; sometimes it is the fact that you have shown up to sit with someone that matters. Sometimes people need to talk things through, over and over – almost like they are trying to convince themselves that what is happening is really happening. Sometimes people need to take their minds off what is happening; sometimes reality is too much to bear every minute of every day. Take your cue from them – talk, listen, just sit. Listen to your heart – it will know what is right.
