I took a risk to ask: What are you going through?; what happened next?

60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: What Are You Going Through?

DEC 1, 20232 MIN


Hello, to you listening in Canovanas, Puerto Rico!

Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday and your host, Diane Wyzga.

I came across something the author Simone Weil wrote.  “The love of our neighbor in all its fullness means being able to say to her, ‘What are you going through?’” 

I wondered what would happen if I took a risk to ask that question. What did I have to lose? As my dear storytelling Canadian friend Michelle would say: “If you don’t go you won’t know so give it a go!”

I did. In turn, I received a story of intrigue, despair, resilience, change, courage, and resolution. I don’t know if I was able to help my friend with my question; but I can’t say that I didn’t help her.

Story Prompt: There is something about this question that goes so far beyond: How ya doin’? Give it a go; maybe begin with your own good self, “What are you going through?", listen to what’s being shared, and then Write That Story!
