Boost: (n) a source of help or encouragement
I am more like an oyster who knows when it’s essential to close down my lid and work on my pearl.
But since I still wear skin and sometimes it’s too thin and gets offended, I certainly require a boost.
A boost is a piece of encouragement which is just short of a lie–because if a boost is a lie, it eventually plays out and makes you look like you’re pandering or flattering instead of helping someone through a dark hour.
How do you boost the prospects of another human being? By telling them how much they mean to you and how they’ve benefited your life in the past forty-eight hours instead of trying to steer them in the direction you think they should go.
Sometimes I need a boost … or I find myself clamming up, with no energy to make pearls.
