Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Being Heard…..

--by Mish, posted Nov 18, 2022
We have a neighbor, who became a friend, who comes over at the end of each week…she stays about 30 minutes or so.

She’s a good talker, lol, & always interesting. An extremely kind person & very generous to others on a regular basis. Very positive energy 👌🏻

Over time I’ve noticed she has opened up more & seems to need to share about anything might be causing her some stress during the week. I’m glad she trusts us enough now to feel safe & knows we stay fully present & listen without judgement.

When she finishes sharing I give her any thoughts about her stressor that might be useful for her to consider.

We all need a safe place to share & am grateful for my friends who truly listen without judging & often help me see things differently, who are supportive & often make me feel comfortable with how I might be processing something that might be going on that’s causing me some stress.  And a few of these friends are here, at KINDSPRING 😘
