Many of us enjoy talking. But when was the last time you tried to really listen? It is about listening with your eyes and ears to understand the meaning and emotions behind what another person is saying. Is doesn’t mean you don’t get a turn to talk. It just means that you try to understand where the other person is coming from before sharing your own view.
Have you ever answered someone before he or she was finished asking a question, only to find out that your answer wasn’t what the other person was asking about at all? When people feel understood and appreciated, they are more willing to help you with your needs. People who are closest to you will need time to talk about their feelings just as much as you will need time to talk about yours. Stop, think, and listen before responding, and ask others to the same for you.
