sorry for only posting quotes lately- at least they are excellent ones

“I don’t believe in advice. Everybody has the answers right inside her, since we’re all made up of the same amount of God. So when a friend says, I need some advice, I switch it to, I need some love, and I try to offer that. Offering love usually looks liked being quiet, listening hard, and letting my friend talk until she discovers that she already has the answers. …I think friends ask me for advice because they know I won’t offer any. People need a safe place and some time to discover what they already know. So I just try to hold space and time for folks.

-Glennon Melton, Carry On, Warrior, p117
