Listening is a big part of cherishing another person, while ignoring them conveys the message, “You’re not that important to me.”
In St. James’ Gospel, he notes, “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.”
Sometimes it’s really difficult listening to another person without succumbing to the temptation to interrupt them, since we have this great story we’re dying to share — or perhaps there’s a factual error we feel compelled to correct.
This is the time to quiet our minds, breathe deeply and show that we’re truly present.
