Often following disasters there is a natural instinct to help, to donate, to take action, to write posts on Facebook, to be outraged, sadden or a whole variety of emotions.
But in a week, what will we all do? A month? What will we do?
The people suffering from the disaster need help for a long time after, not just our initial support.
Let’s not forget.
Vulnerability is hard enough without the audience evaluating.
Listen, empathise and support.
No fixing, no autobiographical orations, people aren’t broken.
Our collective buried emotions are what creates our collective human challenges.
Emotions come out when we make it safe for others to share.
Lead and create a safety zone for others to release their emotions, it’s how we create a better society.
