About Listening

 

The gift of being a good listener, a gift which requires constant practice, is perhaps the most healing gift anyone can possess.  It allows the other to be, enfolds them in a safe place, does not judge or advise them, accepts them as they are without desiring to change them, and communicates support at a level deeper than words.
