Welcome back Ladies & Gentlemen!
Today we're discussing family! If you know me you would know my family is my pride and joy, but there is a plot twist. I am the eldest Granddaughter of my Grandmother...who was the last of my Grandfather's five wives. Yes my Grandfather was a polygamist...five wives, at once. Consequently, my family is rather large and I only realised that when I started school and my peers would tell me they had one or two aunties, leaving me puzzled. I was so accustomed to a family of 25+ aunties and uncles, that I actually felt sorry for them when I learnt of their small families, ignorant to the fact that my case study was not common.
As I grew older and left home, having a polygamous family definitely saved me from having a mental breakdown. I am an individual that "just gets on with it", but having family that would pay me visits, call me regularly and provide a large support network was and is fantastic! It helped me deal with numerous things, that even they are unaware of. Now I have given you an insight into my story, I would to address some ways you can provide a good support network for somebody who is open to it.
Being a good support
In order to provide the best support for somebody, you need to be able to relate to them and speak on what you have experienced. Learn to understand the same language, rather than just speak it. Take this metaphorically, and note that until your focus is on understanding people you will only just hear them.
Also have understanding of the essence of spirit. People are most protective of their spirit and when trying to help others, most of us our so concerned with trying to get into their mind that we forget to project an aura they can feel free with. If you present a good aura, their spirit will most likely open up to you: allowing you to connect with the mind.
Please let us have more discussions about ways people can help others feeling down, or ways people helped you that you have treasured.
