Conversations are omnidirectional pathways. When you carry a conversation with someone, you should be open and listen. Truly tune-in to the words they say, hear the cadence in their words, visualize the colors of their emotions, listen to the rhythm of their beats, and replicate the body language they exhibit.
Listening skills are one of life’s most difficult skills to perform. Many times, our judgement immediately comes into play and we offer our advice, our thoughts, and our preconceived notions without listening to the full story. We don’t understand their feelings. Learn where they are in their position. Listen.
