“Listening is an attitude of the heart, a genuine desire to be with another which both attracts and heals.” — Anonymous
“We do this when we listen,” she said. “ It’s also incredibly important that we listen to ourselves so we can understand and meet our own needs for self-care. That way we are better able to care for others. These acts of listening and caring for ourselves first is the realm of self-compassion.”

Good listeners show genuine interest in
what’s being said and show empathy
to the speaker by caring.
