Listening

A problem with learning to listen is the realisation that not everyone listens. They often make the right noises but they see just waiting for the opportunity to speak.

Learning to listen means meeting up with people who really do listen. It's a privilege.

Lately I've had something significant to worry about. The non-listeners dismiss my worries and say it'll be ok because they care about me and don't like to see me in pain. But I feel dismissed.

A listener hears that I am worried, 'allows' me to be worried and stays with me while I find my way to a place of peace. I feel cared for.
