We listen to others. Almost always through the lens of our own perspectives and experiences. We judge. Usually not consciously. But we judge.
But what if we didn't do that?
It isn't easy, but it's possible. I have been working on this skill. And I have seen some INCREDIBLE results: Transformed relationships. Stronger ties with family. Deeper connections with friends. And the list goes on.
Imagine someone listening to you with their complete attention. Not giving their opinion. Not giving their advice. Just listening. Truly. Deeply. Intently. Have you experienced this? If so, how did it feel?
