I have begun sharing. Why? Because I care. I care about those who have been hurt. I care about those who can help those being hurt or who have been hurt. I care about those who can prevent others from being hurt. I care about those who want to understand. I care about those who want to help. And I care about those who, simply, need to know.
But sharing isn’t always easy. And it isn’t always perceived as caring. Sometimes, it can merely frighten those on the receiving end. So, I think it is important to be responsible for the listening – will this person be able to hear right now what I next will say, or do I need to set up the conversation differently, so that this person can hear what I am going to say?
Beyond that, though, no matter how jarring it may be to share, I believe that sharing truly is caring. And I care.
Therefore, I share.
Watch out, world. I’m coming, open.
And that openness has reached a whole new level. So, get ready. And let’s do this. ❤
