You can spell Listen and Silent with the same letters. We meet people not by accident. Therefore, it is a means that they cross our path for a reason.
“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention… A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.” – Rachel Naomi Remen
Do you Listen with the intent to understand or do you Listen with the intent to reply?
