There are times in our lives where we just want to be left alone and don’t want to listen to others yet the other person really needs to be heard and feel understood. After a very busy and stressful day at work sometimes all we want to do is be alone with quiet except our spouse or significant other wants our full attention to tell us about their day. Being a good respectful listener provides verification to them that we love and respect them. This holds true for others you interact with throughout the day. Step back take a breath and just listen by focusing on them. Making this small change just might improve your relationship with others.
Question: Are you being a good listener?
