Today a person trusted me with many of their long-held, deeply personal, emotionally painful secrets. We spent about two hours talking, discussing, exploring, reflecting; and at the end of our time together, the person was visibly changed. Their shoulders were more relaxed, their eyes were brighter, and their face wore a genuine smile. Observing this shift was amazing. It’s beautiful watching someone meet their true selves.
Today I simply held the space for someone to begin healing themselves – and it was a tremendously affirming way to spend the afternoon. I’m grateful for the person’s trust and confidence; and while they benefited from our meeting, I am also a better human as a result of the interaction.
I love win-win situations. 🙂
