Hearing (resurrected)

Posted on 2007-09-08. Filed under: Quotes, Thoughts |

Second post in a day…

This is from a blog that’s no longer updated. I used to read it and I’ve been thinking of this post lately so I’m resurrecting it without the permission of the original author. 🙂 (Hope I don’t get sued!) 😀

 

It seems like such an easy task, to take in the words of another and comprehend them in their entirety…I’ve discovered it actually requires quite a bit of skill.

Hearing without prejudice and supposition is a gift we give to the one speaking. I have had my words twisted and maligned far too often and finding one who hears not only my words but my heart affirms me as person. Failure to hear, attempts to redefine me, change me and re-make me into what is easier for the listener to handle.

Communication is an art and the result can be a masterpiece or a disaster and the differences are easily recognized.
