I know how important it is to listen, really listen with your heart. I will admit, I am not always the best at it. Listening is a form of caring. When you listen with intent, you are telling the story-teller what they are saying is important to you. You are showing the person they are important to you.
Listen with your heart.
“Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you.
Listen in such a way that others love to speak to you.”
I am working hard on this second one. I am working on really listening, when someone is talking to me. Listen with an empathetic ear. I am guilty of failing at this, as I am sure we all are from time to time. If you are like me, you need to learn to listen with your heart.
