“Your topic really is a gift to people. I lost my beloved Mother to cancer and as she was battling, we faced so much of what you’re addressing here. We received an outpouring of offers to help and “let me know if there’s anything I can do,” etc. and I didn’t realize why it felt inauthentic and laborious responding to them […] It was exactly as you said…There were hardly any real actionable offerings, it felt like people simply offered to feel like they were doing something without having to really do anything…not consciously of course, but its human nature and the world we live in. She died over ten years ago and your message STILL means so much to someone like me, because I felt awful for feeling that way but now I am at peace with it. You could help change the world with your message!!!” Chrissy M.
