When we often are looking for the right words to say, I have discovered that simply being present is all I need to be.
There is something irrevocably powerful in simply being there.
The power of presence communicates:
I see you
I hear you
I want to be here with you
Your pain matters
Your joy matters
You are real to me
Your life matters
You are worth my time
There is nowhere I would rather be in this moment than with you. Right here. Right now.
You. Are. Not. Alone.
We can often do damage with the wrong words. But our presence is never a mistake.
It is our feet in the street. It is our statement of solidarity. It is our voice when words fail us.
The power of being present.
