Being Heard

snowycreek

One of the biggest things we can do to make another person feel small is to act as though neither their words nor their actions are worth being heard.

When we do not give them our full attention when they speak, when we refuse to allow them to finish their sentences and when we neglect to give appreciation for the kindnesses they show, we are essentially telling them that they are not worth our better efforts.

Every soul longs to be heard.
