Listening

Monday, November 28th, 2011

It’s amazing how hard it is to listen to another, truly listen.  Yet listening is one of the greatest acts of love you can give.

How often are you actually listening to what is being said to you, as opposed to thinking of the response you want to make, a response based on the first 5 words that you just heard?

Perhaps you want to have  a different conversation all together, and all you can think about is when it will be your turn to talk.

We all want to be heard.  That’s how we feel important.  That’s how we feel understood.  That’s how we feel loved.

How well are you loving those around you?  How well are you listening to the important people in your life today?
