"Sometimes quiet people really do have a lot to say.
They're just being careful about who they open up to."
Whisper for now is about encouraging people to share, to open their hearts and share their deepest hurts in a safe space. We talk constantly about the healing and empowerment that comes with people being able to share their stories. What's been on our hearts lately though, is the fact that it is just as important to be willing to listen quietly, to be that person that makes people feel safe enough to open up and share their story. A quiet and willingness to listen is ultimately one of the most empowering and healing gifts you could give to anyone with a story, a hurt or brokenness. A quiet listener is someone who does just that, listens, allows the hurting to just speak, to open their hearts without judgement, without even saying too much. Validation comes from listening and allowing them to feel what they are feeling and say what they need to say.
In moments of deep brokenness, the most powerful thing a victim can receive is the quiet listening ear of someone, someone who allows them to feel what they are feeling, and actually hears what's being said. We don't need to make it better for them, we don't need to tell them it will be okay, we don't need to push them to healing. We simply just need to listen.
We want you to know that if you are hurting or know someone who is, we are always here as quiet listeners, willing to hear your story, your heart, and know for sure that we are hearing what you are saying.
