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.
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.
