" Great healing is available when we listen to each other" it is such a simple act. we dont have to advice or coach or sound wise. we only need to be present full heartedly and express our willingness to listen. 

I remember a small story surrounding this. I once heard a delighhtful story about a little boy who was late getting home one day. When his mother asked , why he was late, he explained that he had stopped to help a friend whose bicycle had broken down."But you don't know how to fix a bicycle," his mom said. " No, " the little boy said, "but i stopped to be with him while he cried ".

If you can tell your story to some one who listens, Who REALLY LISTENS, we find it easier to deal with our circumstances.
