Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. -Dinah Maria Mulock Craik, poet and novelist (20 Apr 1826-1887)
Those words took my breath away. They reminded me of all the people who have come into my life & listen to me – just listen, without judgement, let me vent it all out. Holding my confidence, being kind. My gratitude remains, even if I haven’t remained in touch.
If only I could remember to be that person more often.
