A stressful time of the year ..for many .
When you think a friend may need some assistance what should you do ?
What should you say ? These are some very common thoughts… and certainly you will want to make the suggestions in a tender loving way . It just may change their life ! Below I am going to leave a few insights as to what clues might you have that coaching / counsel would be of great benefit to them or yourself . Life can be filled with difficulties , and part of living is coping with those difficulties, transforming them and then moving forward . Friends can be of help at times., however, at times they just are not equipped to assist you ….or you may not want to burden them .
Here are a few of the clues I mentioned above …ponder them , Life is meant to be Glorious ..suffering is only optional .
* A situation you feel is too big for you / them and therefore become overwhelmed.
* You hear the same problems over and over again and nothing seems to change.
* You / your friend states they want to make a significant investment to improve their life.
You might want to say to them something like : “Mike , this situation seems like a really big one . I still want to be a friend and speak with you , however , I don’t think I can give you as much help as I believe you want to have .” What better gift to give them ?
