Women Write



WHAT IS SUPPORT?

Support is unconditional. It is listening, not judging,
not telling your own story.

Support is not offering advice. It is offering a Kleenex,
a touch, a hug...caring.

We are here to help women discover what they are feeling...
not make the feelings go away.

We are here to help a woman identify her options...
not to tell her which options to choose.

We are here to discuss steps with a woman...
not to take the steps for her.

We are here to help a woman discover her own strength...
not to rescue her and leave her still vulnerable.

We are here to help a woman discover she can help herself...
not to take responsibility for her.

We are here to help a woman learn to choose...
not to make it unnecessary for her to make difficult choices.
