Sumesh Nair writes "Many relationship problems are rooted in a communication breakdown. These can be as simple as not really hearing what the other person is saying, because we get caught up in our own fixed perspectives".
As you go to have conversations this week, notice how you are listening, and how open you are to hearing what the other person is.
In today's world where most professionals are rewarded for problem solving, finding a solution and/or advising, listening with an open ear to just listening is sometimes scarce. Many times those we love just want to be heard, not fixed.
Enjoy your conversations this weekend,
