I’ve been helping a student with a challenging situation that they were in. There was too much on their plate, and they had to make a big decision about how to manage it all. They needed some perspective. So last week I listened, today I counseled, and this afternoon, this student came to my office beaming. They had made their difficult decision… and she was so ecstatic, as a weight was lifted off of her shoulders. I loved that I could help her, and that she trusted me enough to help her.
