Truly, I have never been where you are, so I am not going to pretend that I have. I have only been where my life has taken me and oh boy, do I have some stories. But this is your story. Would you believe me if I said that no one knows 100% what you are facing? Even a sibling who has similar experiences and upbringing doesn’t experience the world the exact same. It is what makes us completely unique.
So I need to learn things through your eyes. What did you experience, how did you perceive it, remember it, etc. These small factors can make a difference in understanding someone’s point of view. Sometimes we are fully aware, sometimes not. Sometimes our focus is shifted or altered. Our memory at times may even suck. That’s ok. We will work with what we have and we will learn to grow in ways we want to improve.
But from day one I can guarantee that I am in your corner. You are not alone and you don’t have to figure it out on your own. So regardless of the obstacle in front of you, you know that you have resources in your corner to turn to until the day that you have learned them and you don’t need me anymore. That is the ultimate goal!
