Thank you for trusting me with this

Next time someone shares something with me that maybe I don't agree with or it makes me angry or concerned, I am going to take a moment and then say, "Thank you for trusting me with this."

What a gift it is to be trusted.

Every time someone shares something, they are trusting you. 

This one will be hard with the kids because I just want to jump in with advice. Sometimes I don't like what they are telling me about a choice they made. But I want them to keep sharing their stories with me, so I need to shut up and say, "Thank you for trusting me with this." 

I'm going to try and talk less and just be there. 

Just be. 
Just love. 
Just listen. 

I can ASK if they want my help. I don't have to jump in and help or offer advice. If they ask for help, I'll give it. If they don't, I'll just keep listening and loving and being there.
