11 Things You Need To Do?

An article appeared on my timeline today. It provided a list of 11 things to bear in mind when helping a person in distress. It’s packed full of good ideas, and very well intentioned. You might well find yourself nodding and agreeing with its 11 points…

… Hold on a moment , 11 points? When I’m with someone who is suffering, I need an 11 point checklist? Really?

Loving kindness, compassionate listening and the rest are our natural human state. Believing we need a checklist takes us further away from the truth.

If that didn’t make sense to you, I’m happy to have a chat next week. :)
