What is Support?

What is Support?

 

Support is unconditional.
It is listening…
Not judging, not telling your own story.
Support is not offering advice
It is offering a handkerchief, a touch, a hug… caring.
We are here to help women discover what they are feeling….
Not to make the feelings go away
We are here to help a woman identify her options.
Not to tell her which options to choose.
We are here to discuss steps with a woman…
Not to take the steps for her.
We are here to help a woman discover her own strength…
Not to rescue her and leave her still vulnerable.
We are here to help a woman discover she can help herself…
Not to take that responsibility for her.
We are here to help a woman learn to choose…
Not to make it unnecessary for her to make difficult choices.
