Practice Active Listening

Have you found yourself in a “conversation” with someone and thought it wasn’t a conversation at all? Sometimes it is more like people taking turns talking. Often one person is waiting for the other’s voice to stop so they can say what they have been planning on saying the entire time the other person is talking. Take time to truly listen to the other person. Be still and look into the other’s eyes. Resist the urge to talk about yourself. Today I will aim to be an active listener!
