Just listen

Something inspirational:

“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.”

  1. Yes, when people are telling you something they want your attention and for you to just listen. It means so much to others to just listen to them and then give your sincerest opinion or resolution.

    This is especially true when someone is grieving or very down. Good eye contact is part of it too.

    1. Thanks Lisa. You’re absolutely right, but I often think we should be doing this as a matter of course regardless of whether it means so much to others.

      In this fast paced world not enough of us work this way or have the time or patience to just listen.

  2. Some people listen with a compassionate ear and others listen in anticipation to exploit vulnerability.

    I appreciate this quote because listening to words and movement just may save a life. A person who truly listens is well centered philosophically, morally and socially.

    Nice Quote.
