What Does Support Look Like? (Connie J...)
I'm a "problem‐solver". However, in being supportive, it is NOT what "the supporter" needs; it IS what "the supportee" needs - the support, itself. There is a very fine line.
This is pretty applicable to many life, and world situations. I have really been challenged, in this time, to really buckle down and look at myself.
Am I being true to myself, and my beliefs? Or am I still "faking it, to make it", as I basically lived my life for the first 30 years?
As I've mentioned before, there are as many different ways to support, as there are people that need to be supported. If you want to know what kind of support they need, ask - if they say they don't know, just be there for them. I try and share ideas, throughout this Blog; but as I have said before, their safety is paramount.
Remember, support is not solving the problem. You should do what you can; but the "supportee" is responsible for any actions that need to happen.
Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE www.ozerministriesinc.com #walkinTHEIRshoes #EtSoV
*October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please share this, no matter what month it is, to help get the word out. The Victim has to make the choice - but, "What If..." they read something you sent them, that makes the difference? #walkinTHEIRshoes
*I will be sharing a "What If..." post on the first Monday, of every month. I would love to share YOUR "what ifs". Please send your "What If..." ideas to Connie J... - firstname.lastname@example.org; or through Ozer, at the website or email, email@example.com.
