We often feel like we are listening because we do not speak but that is only the beginning. We must immerse ourselves in the message being relayed to us. In order to understand another we must actually yearn to understand them, so much so that we are temporarily willing to put our need to be understood aside in order to understand. So much so that we put away our retorts and responses and simply absorb. Listening takes work & discipline but its relationship rewards are well worth the effort.
