Healing 2 minutes at a time

Getting to the truth with maybe…

So often tough, hard, unimaginable things happen in our life and we find ourselves in a place of trying to explain “the why” to a child, to a friend or even to ourselves and we just can’t get there. We can’t find the words. We don’t know why this had to happen, but it has happened and we seek answers.

Answers aren’t always easy to come by, especially with the incredibly tough experiences we face.

A friend of mine’s friend took her own life this week and she called to me to ask my guidance on how to explain it to her children. My response was,

“Get to the truth through maybes…”

“Maybe she was ill.” “Maybe he misunderstood.” “Maybe he was in a very tough place.” “Maybe she had a hard time talking about her feelings.” “Maybe she felt really alone and didn’t realize so many people loved her.”

The powerful use of the “maybe” is that we can use that maybe as a launching pad for a meaningful discussion with our loved one. “Maybe she had a hard time talking about her feelings. Would you like to talk about your hurt feelings? I want you to know you are not alone and that I love you.”

The “maybe” is simple.

The “maybe” is powerful.

The “maybe” will help you heal your heart by allowing  it to explore the reasons and the whys it had to happen.

There is rarely one answer to any question. Why should these tough questions be any different? Allow that “maybe” to help your heart not get so attached to one answer or reason but be healed through detaching to any particular answer.

Who knew such a simple word could be so powerful?


We can’t wait to hear how you used your maybe this week!
