The Therapy of Listening

“The first duty of love is to listen.”

Paul Tillich

Make out time today to really listen to someone. The only therapy some people actually need is someone who can just hear them out.

Do someone that favor today. Help a soul out of its predicament and captivity.

Today, you can be someone’s doctor by just listening to them bare their minds.

Listen to your kids today_ just hear them out.

Listen to your spouse today_ let them bare their mind; encourage them to do so. And really hear them out.

Make that happen for someone today ๐Ÿค—

  1. Thank you for this reminder. I always find itโ€™s easier to connect with people when Iโ€™m listening with my whole self, and repeating or summarizing what someone has said to show Iโ€™m listening. Iโ€™m a counselor in training and I find these sorts of basic skills are useful beyond the therapy room!

    Remember, if youโ€™re only listening to hear when itโ€™s your turn to speak, youโ€™re not really listening.

      True the skills are useful beyond the therapy room.

      It pays to really listen to people and do it with the right intention.

    And yes sometimes all we need is someone who would genuinely listen to us without judging us, someone who tries to understand us in a deeper level and make us feel better.
    Thanks for sharing this and have a wonderful day Joshua! ๐Ÿ˜Š
