"It's easy to teach, to preach, to give memorized answers.
It's easy to be an expert.
"It's harder to listen, to really listen.
To be still and wait.
To give someone space.
to receive them with your whole being.
"When you think you know what's 'best' for someone,
when you're excited by your own vision,
when you want to jump in with great advice,
take a deep breath.
"Your friend may not need what's 'best' right now.
They may just need you.
"Kinship can be the most potent medicine.
"Sometimes true answers emerge when questions are allowed to breathe."
