Just listen

11

When your loved one is talking, practice listening deeply.

Sometimes the other person will say something that surprises us, that is the opposite of the way we see things.

Allow the other person to speak freely.

Don’t cut your loved one off or criticize their words.

When we listen deeply with all our heart – for ten minutes, half an hour, or even an hour – we will begin to see the other person more deeply and understand them better.

If they say something that is incorrect based on a wrong perception, we can give them a little information later on.

But right now, we just listen.

  1. I think that listening is the best way to show someone you love them. Giving them space to be free and open and all the while dancing with them in conversation.

  2. Listening is good; it gives the impression that one loves and respects one’s partner. In fact, it’s a good attitude towards the growth of one’s marriage.
