A note to future lovers…

…Don’t go too hardcore on the hickeys:

“A woman was partially paralysed by a love bite from her amorous partner, a New Zealand doctor has reported…┬áThere was a clot in the artery underneath where the hickey was.┬áThe clot had gone into the woman’s heart and caused a minor stroke that led to the loss of movement.”

Intense!

Sometimes it’s fabulous when someone asks you how you are and won’t “Fine thanks” for an answer if they know it’s probably not the case. When someone wants to take the time to really listen &, other than seeing you smile, has no vested interest in your story otherwise, it’s a true blessing.

Sometimes it’s not “cheering up” that people need when they’re down (it’s not like a me-me-me pity party would work either!) but it’s the simple offering of a listening ear that doesn’t try to solve your situation.

Sometimes the best thing someone can do is take the time to say “how are you?” & be ready to really listen for the response.
