Leader Resource 2: Tender Points Guidelines

Copy these points onto a newsprint page for use during Activity 4, Tender Points.

  • To know me is to know my tender points, the sensitive and the sacred, and how they influence my life.
  • To be my friend is to accept and respect all of those points as an integral part of my being.
  • To love me is to take them into your heart for safekeeping so that I may be able to do the same for you.
  • Love is not just about the romance; it is about friendship and compassion, as well.
  • For if you do not know what hurts me, how can you truly love me?
