BEING THERE FOR OTHERS

To relate with others compassionately is a challenge. Really communicating from the heart and being there for someone else—our child, spouse, parent, client, patient, or the homeless woman on the street—means not shutting down on that persona, which means, first of all, not shutting down on ourselves. This means allowing ourselves to feel what we feel and not pushing it away. It means accepting every aspect of ourselves, even the parts we don’t like. To do this requires openness, which in Buddhism is sometimes called emptiness—not fixating or holding on to anything.

Among the many books by Pema Chodron are When Things Fall Apart and The Wisdom of No Escape
