    I have seen and felt the power of listening to another person. Listening without saying much of anything. Something that has helped me over the years is what Oswald Chambers once said: “Never make a principle out of your own experience; always let God be as creative with others as He has been with you.” I think that sometimes we want to “fix” hurting people because they remind us that we might hurt badly one day ourselves (as if our well being is somehow tied to the other person’s condition!). Fear fixes, love listens.

      That last short sentence in your comment is a winner. Thanks.

        Feel free to use it any time. It was one of those things that popped up in my mind just as I was about to hit the Submit button.
