I suspect that the most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen.

Just Listen.

Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. And especially if it’s given from the heart. When people are talking, there’s no need to do anything but receive them.

Just take them in. Listen to what they are saying. Care about it.

Most times, caring about it is even more important than understanding it. Most of us don’t value ourselves or our love enough to know this. It has taken me a long time to believe in the power of simply saying, “I’m so sorry,” when someone is in pain. And meaning it.
