IT ONLY TAKES A FEW WORDS

IT ONLY TAKES A FEW WORDS

isolation

            If you knew it would only take a few words, maybe a sentence, to relieve another person’s pain would you provide them?

Leadership-in-Communication

            Your words do not have to be in person. An email or voice message would suffice. A few simple words to signal awareness of another’s existence such as ‘Thinking of you’ or ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ are all that is necessary. Nothing very elaborate, just an acknowledgement.

abandonment

            Perhaps you are unaware of the pain caused by your abandonment. You did not direct a physical assault. There is no external indication of pain for you to verify with records.

Help-written-in-sand

            How could you know your lack of contact is perceived as non-caring and hurtful? There is no expiration date on how often to make a connection.

sad+alone

Are you mindful of your silence?

  1. My father’s silence was perceived as not caring. Years later when I confronted him I discovered my silence was viewed the same way. If we could have just tried a little harder our relationship would not have suffered.

    Great post. Thanks for sharing.
