Active Listening

Little is as wonderful as being listened to. Whether it pertains to an exciting bit of good news or the gut-wrenching sadness of bad news, we all long for someone to listen to us. We want them first to give us their undivided attention and then to ask questions and show their concern. Do you know how to provide your mate and loved ones with heartfelt compassion and attention? Do you ask questions and gently peer into their heart? Consider those in your world and how you might offer loving attention.
