Support is unconditional. It is listening
Not judging, not telling your own story.
Support is not offering advice
It is offering a handkerchief, a touch, a hug….caring.
We are here to help women discover what they are feeling
Not to make the feelings go away.
We are here to help a woman identify her options
Not to tell her which options to choose.
We are here to discuss steps with a woman
Not take the steps for her.
We are here to help a woman discover her own strength
Not to rescue her and leave her still vulnerable.
We are here to help a woman discover she can help herself
Not to take that responsibility for her.
We are here to help a woman learn to choose
Not to make it unnecessary for her to make difficult choices.
