To Listen, to Love

image

Part of my vocation is to understand why people think the way they think, speak the way they speak, behave they way they do. In a society where grabbing one’s 15 minutes of fame is omnipotent, expressing opinions, hogging the spotlight is the goal, the person who listens, understands, empathizes, is becoming an extinct species.

Too often our “listening” is simply a response waiting to happen. We wait for a pause, a breath, and then pounce, bloviating and dominating with our many words. We’ve forgotten how to listen, to allow another’s words to affect us, change us, make us feel and perhaps love more fully.

blessings,
