“How are you doing?” I asked my husband.
He stopped. He blinked like he had not thought about his own internal state of being.
Then he spoke with heartfelt thoughts.
I was glad I had really paused and listened.
I have three insights for you.
- Realize different perceptions and different sources of comfort.
Years ago, I heard an idea: For comfort one person, Susan, ate chicken soup. She disliked tomato soup. Her partner, George, was quite different. He depended on tomato soup. A real problem is no matter how much tomato soup George prepares for Susan, it will not comfort her.
People are different in their perceptions, needs, and sources of comfort.
George needs to ask Susan what she finds comforting.
How about your relationships? Have you asked a friend how you can support her in the way she prefers?
- Engage a prayer to reduce distraction.
I’ve noticed that life is so tough for many of us. We’re dealing with our personal problems. We’re distracted.
Lord and Lady, quiet down my own distraction,
So I can listen to the other person.
Quiet my mind,
So I can hear.
Open my heart,
So my [friend] knows I care and I love them.
So Mote It Be.
- Invite the Goddess to elevate your relationship.
I’ve learned that the Goddess truly wants to support us.
“I am the Gracious Goddess, who gives the gift of joy unto the heart.” – The Goddess speaking in The Charge of the Goddess, as written by Doreen Valiente
Gracious Goddess, please elevate my relationship with [friend’s name]
Strengthen us so we can comfort each other
Open our hearts to opportunities to show we care and love each other.
So Mote It Be.
May these insights support your path.
