I see you

I see you

I think these are three of the most powerful words.

For me it means, I connect to both your pain and joy.

When you are sad, I am sad.

When you are happy, I am happy.

Even in disagreement, I am for you and your best.

That I feel you and will act as if we are each other.

I will stand with you when you are taking risks.

I have room for you to try new things and make mistakes.

I will look you in the eye when you are capable of more.

Because to see is to truly honor someone’s soul.

To honor their full humanity.

What an amazing gift we can give each other.

To walk through life each day…looking at someone…

And to say with words and actions…

I see you.
