Happy Wednesday Friends!
On today’s ‘Wednesday Walk’, I share the importance of holding space for someone who is in need. In the home stretch of my move, I experienced a challenging situation that brought up many emotions for me. When my storage container was delayed longer than planned, I found myself so full of frustration and anger that I got emotional and freely expressed it to the representative that I spoke to on the phone. All the while that I was yelling and upset, this sweet woman compassionately held space for me and respected my need to express myself in a very human way. It was her patience, compassion and ability to hold space for me that grounded me and allowed me to move through what I needed to more quickly. Check out my Wednesday Walk to hear about the situation that taught me the importance of holding sweet space for someone.
I would love to hear from you. Have you ever been in a situation where you compassionately held space for someone in need? Have you ever been the person who is in need of that from someone else? How did that support you in your process? Please leave a comment on the blog so we can all learn from you.
