A few days ago, when I was scrolling on Instagram, I saw one of my friends' profiles. His profile caught my attention because it says "Listener". Listening is one of my favourite things to do and one of the essential things I expect my loved ones to do for me. Listening is necessary for meaningful and fruitful interactions. We listen because we want to make people feel you heard and understood. We listen to those people whose stories do matter to us. Listening strengthens relationships and demonstrates attentiveness, caring, and respect. Since childhood, we are taught to speak correctly and communicate effectively. Listening is also equally important. But wait, listening is more than just hearing. It is more about taking the people's sayings, digesting and understanding them better. Listening shows you're engaged and interested in the other person's words. And listening without judgment and with patients is crucial in any relationship. I feel more relieved when someone listens to me without interruption and with undivided attention. I appreciate those people who love to hear. Likewise, I love listening to people's stories and experiences. It helps me to connect with them easily. It helps us to build great relationships and lessen the mental burden of the other person. Listening has excellent healing power. So yes, let's have one simple change in our lives, to listen to people!
