I have had some very honest conversations with a few dear friends recently.
These conversations are game-changers. Not because there is any advice offered. No quick-fix suggestions. No "I used to struggle with the same thing, but then I found a perfect answer" nonsense.
Just deep listening. Gentle curiosity. Simple questions asked only for understanding, not shaming.
This is how life change happens:
Find your people.
Practice radical honesty.
Keep your opinions to yourself.
May you have the gift of safe friends with whom you can be completely honest.
And may you be the same kind of friend to them.
