When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving me advice you have not done what I asked.
When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me ‘why I shouldn’t feel that way’ you are trampling on my feelings.
When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problems, you have failed me.
Listen! All I ask is that you LISTEN, Not talk, nor do anything just hear me.
And I can do for myself – I’m not helpless
Maybe discouraged but not helpless.
So please listen and just hear me, and if you want to talk, Wait a for your turn and I’ll listen to you.
