This is a quote I came across by Morgan Harper Nichols and it embodies for me the essence of my job as a therapist; touching as well on the deep respect I have for another person’s story.
Empathy: Let me hold the door for you. I may have never walked a mile in your shoes, but I can see that your soles are worn and your strength is torn under the weight of a story I have never lived before. So let me hold the door for you. After all you’ve walked through, it’s the least I can do. ~Morgan Harper Nichols
