No matter how you choose to identify, the perspective you bring to the IDLM community is valued. Every different skill set, every different point of view, adds to our community and increases the types of information and support we are able to give each other and our clients.
Compassion is something you can feel for anyone. It doesn’t matter if you have suffered the same type of tragedy as they have, or if you come from a similar background, or even if you speak the same language. It doesn’t matter if you’ve known them for years, or if you’re seeing them for the first time. Compassion doesn’t ask questions, it sees someone hurting and it gets to work helping them heal.
