When I wrote the last blog, I forgot to include an important part. I didn’t mean to make it sound like I had the whole thing figured out. A main part of why I wrote it was that there are some friends of mine whom I’m concerned about. No, I’m not saying this from an, “I’ve got it all together and so I’m going to make sure everyone behaves” standpoint. In fact, I’m concerned about myself too.
So my question is, how do we go about bringing this up with people? I think it’s a delicate subject, because it sounds like you’re being judgmental. I want it to be more like, “Hey, since I care about you I’m concerned because I’m getting this feeling that you may run into trouble in this area. Are you doing o.k. and is there some way I can help you out?”
As I said, I believe we should have each other’s backs, I know I need it too. Though it may not be easy, I think I may try working on this more. Wouldn’t it be better to try and prevent something that to wish we had after it’s too late?
