Chapter 4: Listening & Caring

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you had a good week, and have an amazing and fun filled weekend!

Today, I listened to a friend tell me about her life back home and about her family & friends. But as she was talking, I came to realize she simply wasn’t telling me all of her story because I was just in the room with her. No, she was telling me these things because she trusted me enough to listen with an open ear and without judgement.

Having that realization that someone trusts you, is honestly one of the best feelings in the world. It means so much more than being a friend or family member…it means that they know that you’ll be there for them no matter what, and that you can also trust them with your story too.

Stories are meant to be shared, and when you find someone who is willing to listen, you know that your story is just as important to them as it is to you.Image
