Yes, I like to talk about what I think. Give my opinion. But, a relation is created with listening.
I need to start to ask and really listen.
It’s ok if I don’t know everything. I can use the time I invest listening to others to learn more.
I’m a great listener.
I learn a lot from others.
No one can really understand what you are living. No one can be in the same exactly situation and perceive it as you do.
It’s an habit to say that you can understand what others a living.
If you really want to be nice with someone, be there to listen and acknowledge the pain they experience.
“I stopped explaining myself when I realized people only understand from their level of perception.”
Be the rock that will give stability to someone who’s in pain.
“No matter what, you will never understand someone’s pain, until you’re the one feeling it.”
Even if you experience something similar, you’ll never experience exactly the same.

Your time is precious and the time of others too.
When someone share something useful with you, listen.
“One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.”
– Bryant H. McGill
Good listener will be seen as more friendly.
“Listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply.”
– Stephen Covey
Understand with the intent to learn something from it.
Learning is a choice. Those who have the ability to keep on learning are the ones that keeps on growing.
