How Can I Encourage You…..

 

If you ask a question and I give you an answer…I am helping you.

If you ask a question and I show you how to look for an answer…I am encouraging your ability to be resourceful in finding answers on your own.

If I block all the things that can be difficult for you…I am helping you.

If I show you how to deal with the things that can be difficult for you…I am encouraging your ability to be prepared for difficult things.

If I pick you up each time you fall…I am helping you.

If I show you how to get up when you fall…I am encouraging your ability to be resilient when falling in the future.

If I tell you what you need…I am helping you.

If I ask you what you need…I am encouraging your ability to be aware of your own needs for yourself.

 

Now…how can I encourage you?
