Do You Understand the Words Coming Out of My Mouth??

How often do we listen to others? Not just listen to their words, but to really hear what’s coming out of their mouths. I’m confident that it’s not as often as we think. We hear what the other person is saying yet we don’t give them our undivided attention. Usually while they’re talking we’re thinking of what we’re going to reply with. It’s just how our minds work. Fortunately, we can control it. All you need to do is focus in on the tone, the emotion, the words, and the feeling of what the other person is telling you. Don’t just listen to what they’re saying — HEAR them. Understand them. And then control your thoughts to respond back. I think if we practiced this more often, we’d further enjoy conversations. It’s fascinating though — watching someone talking about something important to them — their face just lights up. Smile on their face, sparkle in their eyes. Oh, the cliché, but it’s so true! Try paying attention next time. Calm your mind and really hear what they’re telling you.
