My friend Ronda sent me Melody Ross’s brave and endearing post “We Must See Past What It Seems” on the Brave Girls Club website. You must read it. [Scroll over the title in the first sentence. The link is there.]
It’s all about hurtful experiences…how we all have them…and how we treat others when they’re going through their dark night. How life might be easier if we wore signs around our necks—”I just lost my job” or “Please be gentle with me…I’m doing my best.”
Suffice it to say, the post brought tears to my eyes. Only because I could relate.
And I’m thinking you might be able to, too.
What a lovely reminder for a Saturday morning. How can we listen or reach out to one hurting person today? And if it’s you who needs consoling rather than someone else, please confide in someone—to be heard, to be loved.
