In the past 10+ years of working through my own challenges, supporting people as a registered nurse, and
supporting people as a friend, I have observed that this one skill I possess is the basis for my success as an
advocate, friend, caregiver, and human. I shut up and listen. I create safety for vulnerability simply by
being present and silent while the other person speaks or feels their feelings through tears, screaming, pacing,
laughing, etc. Quite often that bubble of empathy in which they can externally process the internal
struggle is exactly the support they need.
“Releasing the Pressure” combines my skills with a gentle paced 30, 60, or 90 minute walk in which you
get to say all the things out loud that you never feel like you can or should say and I listen. No advice. No
judgement. Only the occasional question or comment as needed.
