Lots of people are quick to advise, pass judgement and tell others what they should or shouldn’t do. But what many of us really want instead is for someone to be with us, listen and hold space for our thoughts and feelings while we come to our own decisions.
Toni Morrison said, “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” That’s how I felt about this. I wanted to create an “anti-advice” column. A space where people could write in and feel like they were sharing feelings with a girlfriend. Hence, “Hi honey…” since that is how most of my conversations with my girlfriends start.
Thanks for visiting. While you’re here, expect radical empathy, loving-kindness and unconditional positive regard. And please come back often 🙂
