Like I said in my last note, I’ve been sick for the past few days, and haven’t been able to blog. I’m sorry I haven’t been around, but I’m glad to say I’m feeling much better!
I was in New York City recently, and a man helped me to hail said something to me that I found very inspiring. He said, “The more you listen, the better your life will be”. And he’s right! Listening is a huge part of any relationship, and the more people listen to each other, the stronger the relationship will be. Listening is important in any relationship, new or old. Listening allows you to gain new insight into someone’s personal life, and it’s a way for you to share personal thoughts and feelings with others.
Listening means paying attention to what others are saying, and if you pay attention, you could garner valuable information. Advice about cleaning, life, relationships, jobs, you name it. There will always be someone who knows something new, and is willing to share it with you.
Listening doesn’t just mean when you are face-to-face. It can take place through social media, texting, Skyping, calling. Any way to communicate helps. Communication is key for listening, because it can help move the conversation along, and help the relationship grow!
Listening is also a two-way thing. You can’t be the only one listening, the other person (or other people) have to listen too! That’s one of the most important parts of a relationship, knowing that the other person (or people) are listening to what you have to say, and responding with their opinions and ideas!
Listening can help in many aspects of your life, so why not start today!
Have an amazing weekend! xxoo
