Have you ever met a wounded soul? Have you ever wanted to help, to teach, to guide that person back to safety?
A person must save himself. He must know he is worthy. You can’t do the work for him, but you can be the catalyst for change.
Sometimes you’re needed to teach skills to others, to help others discover the tools within them. Other times you’re simply a support system, a means of encouragement. Whatever your role is, never underestimate its importance. You just be the balm needed for healing.
We all learn by making mistakes. Allow the ones you love those lessons, but be there to pick them up when they’re down. There’s no need to control anyone. Loving and edifying them is enough.
Lead your friend to freedom, and you will be liberated as well.
Serve your friend. Help him and you shall be helped in the process.
Pour your love upon another and you shall rise with him.
