Pain is real
There is hope
People can help
The workplace, the school, the team, the family--all of relationships in society can be improved by learning how to encourage. Life is tough and many people don’t know where to turn when crisis happens. The landscape is littered with hurting hearts and lonely souls that are crying out for someone to care for them.
What does it take to reach out and encourage another?
It might sound simple and in many ways it is, however, it can also be incredibly hard work. It is one of the most important things we can do for others-and it’s alot more than just words. It's reaching out to someone who is struggling with empathy, energy, courage, compassion, communication, awareness and insight and that is just the beginning. I could go on and on…
Who knows what tragedy could next be avoided if we take the time to encourage our fellow sojourners on the oftentimes tough path of life.
You can do it. I can help. For more on what to say and do to encourage others see
