Gift of Listening
Listeners deserve invaluable praise in a world filled with talkers.
Just one person with whom you can talk about your fears, insecurities, and past traumas would be comforting. It's a blessing. Often we vent not because we want someone to fix it but because we want to hear ourselves.
The flip side: Be grateful for the presence of such people in your life. But keep in mind that you will have to help yourself in the end, so don't get hung up on the idea that they will always be available. We all have our battles to fight. So... it's good to be on listen-only mode whenever you feel you're needed.
