Listen, Don’t Solve

Happy Mother’s Day, Queens. Sometimes all anyone, including our children, wants from us to a non-judgmental ear. When we think we have to solve every problem, we add stress to situations where a simple “that sounds rough,” would be the kindest thing we could say. Are you able to listen without feeling the need to solve the problem? We all fall into this trap from time to time, especially since we’re very wise. But we believe in the value of every person’s journey and the resilience that is developed by solving problems. So don’t take that away from others. Give them the comfort of a listening ear, the firm ground from which they can venture out into the world and a safe place to come back to. But don’t always feel you need to solve the problem. Agree or disagree?
