One thing that I would like people to do when I drool is to be patient, and understanding and try not to judge. Don’t pity me or assume that I do not understand things because I am very smart. I just happen to drool.
Oh my, so much here.
First, I’m throwing away my iphone STAT. Well played Samsung. (oh, wait, I don’t own an iPhone)
Second, do I hate that this is just a commercial that took lots and lots of prep for this man to be seen for just one day and it’s likely that the next day he was invisible to others? Yes, I hate that.
But you know what, it’s a step. One small step. Loads of people just watched this and saw the impact of being seen. Notice that language/ communication is a huge barrier, just like dang steps.
So go, go out there, without a production crew, and notice someone who might be invisible to others. Anyone. Smile at them. Say hello.
What does it mean to hold space for someone else? It means that we are willing to walk alongside another person in whatever journey they’re on without judging them, making them feel inadequate, trying to fix them, or trying to impact the outcome. When we hold space for other people, we open our hearts, offer unconditional support, and let go of judgement and control.
