    First! 🙂

    Helpers, friends and care-takers get some unintentional (and a bit of intentional) feedback. This is merely a side-effect of being there and listening.
    It’s hard to let that “flow off you”. But, with practices and your own support network, it gets easier and easier.

    How can we help you?

      There’s a difference between telling someone what’s going on with you and taking it out on them because they understand. This post came from listening to a friend’s story about how someone abused a situation because of kindness.
