Advice that we offer to others tends to be autobiographical. That is, we tend to give the advice that we need (or have needed) to take.
To the extent that this writing constitutes advice, the above observation is quite true. It is largely my failures in accompaniment, attentiveness, and contribution that fuel my interest to develop language and practice around this topic.
So please know that, if what I write seems like advice, I’ve let that advice into my own life first.
