I want to be heard

If i could live compassion, i wouldn’t need to talk about it. But that is beyond me. Yet the answer to so much hurt and pain and unfairness is often so very simple in concept. Thoughtfulness, gentleness, being aware of the feelings of the other, be careful in speech and constructive in communication, being respectful simply because that person is a human being, being aware of the value simply because of humanity and life–all of that.

 

if only

So many of us want to help, if it isn’t too costly to ourselves. Okay, so weigh the cost. If helping or protecting or making something work for someone else costs me a dime but gives her or him a quarter’s worth of value, why wouldn’t i?

If i fear there won’t be enough left over if i share for me to have what i want, am i being realistic? Is that a danger? Am i wanting more than i need?

as a retired physician, i have needed to talk with many persons about end of life. And then I cared for my husband for more than five years.
