Listening involves more than the use of our ears. Listening with our mind our thoughts are focused. Listening with our eyes we see their emotion. Listening with the touch of our hands show that we care. Listening with a facial expression such as a nod, smile or frown gives feedback. Listening with our heart helps us understand feelings. Having someone who cares enough to listen fully and understand you is appreciated more than one who is anxious to give advice. People don’t always need advice, but they just might ask for it after we’ve shown that we truly care by listening with more than our ears.
