Sometimes it seems as if everyone wants to be heard, but nobody wants to listen. Harness all of the mental power you have, take a deep breath, and lend someone your ears. Whether in love, in family, or in friendship, the best conversation sometimes is the one where you do all of the listening.
It’s a difficult task, but sometimes instead of hearing what people say, listen to them. Along side this, pay attention to their voice, their mannerisms, and their tone; take in the full effect of their message. You can find out a lot about someone by just listening to their story or hearing their perception of the situation. Not only will you get further with them, but you may also see things in a new light.
Don’t be so quick to speak when you can sit back and listen, the results may surprise you. Most importantly, if you love someone or care about them enough, sometimes the best thing you can be is a quiet soul with two great listening ears.
