The familiar Cherokee tribe ancient proverb says, “Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.” Authentically take on what it is to be with another. Have empathy for others. Perhaps, listen from their perspective, from being them.
In walking in another’s shoes, we can also be in their listening, in their dreams, in their fears, and in their cause. Listen from them. In listening from the other’s perspective, I discover who they are, what they’re up to, and what they want of me. Someone’s listening of me usually won’t be my own.
