A Reciprocal Link

Among our diverse talents we have the ability to communicate and interact with others. With this connection we can build relationships, deepen bonds and find comfort. We all need that occasional moment to relate our feelings, desires and uncertainties, hoping that someone we trust will care enough to listen to what we have to say, without judgement.

When you listen, you are opening your heart to a message. Not only should the words that are spoken be heard, but the hidden meaning should be unearthed and understood. This individual needs you to see past your own convictions on the matter, so that you can give him or her, an unbiased and straightforward response.

If you choose to ignore someone’s concerns, you are not only leaving that person vulnerable to be tossed by the slightest wind, but you in turn will be sealed in by slippery walls and surrounded by emptiness. When you take the time to listen, your voice will then be heard and genuinely accepted.
