I have often mentioned how moved I am by this human experience we are all a part of. As a pretty high feeling individual (at least that’s what Meyers-Briggs tells me), I am most deeply moved by those moments when life is at its hardest.
I have found that simply validating a persons hurt, pain and loss, is far more comforting, because the person going through the difficulty feels heard. Sometimes, that’s all we really need. Being heard. Listened too, without judgement or clever bumper-sticker slogans.
The song “Shattered,” is about validating the hardship. Recognizing the reality of what has happened and offering to listen and just be there.
