This is such a great post. I’ve traditionally been a fixer, yet know for myself it’s the last thing that I want in times of pain. I think that having my son has helped to inspire stand and acknowledge my own behaviour and try to think before I speak. Thanks, Amanda, for articulating this so well. ~Su.Z.
I relate very much to this post. Those that want to ‘fix’ may not understand the problem to begin with – so why not just try to understand and then maybe the empathy or support will follow. Being a father to 3 sons I completely understand your perspective. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post. ~Spearfruit
