Thought For The Day

When you sit with another who is dealing with a lot of pain and suffering, are you listening to just listen, or listening with your mind already forming answers, advice, and ultimately judgment? Today’s quotes talk about the invaluable and priceless gift of holding space for another…

“What does it mean to hold space for someone else? It means that we are willing to walk alongside another person in whatever journey they’re on without judging them, making them feel inadequate, trying to fix them, or trying to impact the outcome. When we hold space for other people, we open our hearts, offer unconditional support, and let go of judgment and control.” (Heather Plett)

“Sometimes the most influential thing we can ever do is just listen.” (Bob Burg)

“Just letting someone speak their truth can sometimes be the biggest gift you can give them, to just hold the space for them.” (Amanda Palmer)

“Empathy has no script. There is no right way to do it. It’s simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of “You’re not alone.” (Brene Brown)

Peace, love, light, and joy,

  1. I wish I had learned this long ago. And also hope that when someone wants my advice, they’ll ask and I’ll have good advice to give. But better late than never to know this. Thank you for your post! 🙂

    1. I still find myself a work in progress on this Diana with others at times especially the closer I am to them like my partner. The good news is that we both see the invaluable benefit of it! 🙏❤️
