courage and nerve...

My wife is taking an ongoing continuing education class studying the writings of Rabbi Edwin Friedman. She came home from class this week with the following saying:

"Don't just do something!
Stand there!"

We always think we need to do something. People expect us to fix the impossible, to be the impossible. It takes courage and nerve to not over-react, become defensive, or attempt to explain away a situation.....just stand there!

You may be pleasantly surprised!
