I just came across a simple idea that is to the point and worth considering:
“LISTEN and SILENT have the same letters!”
The person who shared that with me added, “Do you think that is a coincidence?”
Perhaps, but you can’t have one without the other.
Sometimes, the best question is not, “Am I listening enough to hear what the other person is really saying?”
It might be more useful to ask, “Am I silent enough to hear what the other person is really saying?”
Be safe and courageous,
