To the FIXER in you..
For the longest time, I’ve always tried to be the person who can fix things, find a solution, fix a person who feels broken, and I’ve done everything I suggest not to...
When someone would share what they were feeling, I always felt the need to reply back with what I had done or would have done had I been there! We all do/have done it right?
But that’s not what you want to hear when you’re on the other side! We get so annoyed when people do it to us! When they make our struggles look easy because they have overcome it or were strong enough to never let the feeling get to them! We don’t want people to tell us that you don’t have to feel this way, we don’t want them to tell us that things will be fine when we can’t see that end ourselves!
I still do this! I still tell people that everything will be fine someday! I am still very fond of telling my stories and how I came out fine.. but I am trying not to do it.. I am going to come back and read this again and again and again if I find myself walking down the same path! I don’t want to hurt someone unintentionally only because I did not know the right words!
