What do the people in my life really need? Lately, I’ve been asking myself this question. As a Mom, I’m always asking myself what it is that my children need. The conclusion I’ve come to applies to all people.
To be heard & to be loved.
Forget understanding everything. If you can accomplish that you will be well on your way to a fulfilling relationship, no matter what kind of relationship we are talking about.
When people speak, listen. Don’t force your opinions, just listen and accept. It can be really hard not to interject your opinion. Try it and you’ll see. When someone is speaking allow it to be about them, not you. That is truly listening. (I am going to try really hard to do this with my kids…very hard not to interject!)
Love. It is one word and a sentence all on its own. Love unconditionally and feel gratitude for the person’s presence in your life. Let them feel that love and appreciation.
Love is magic.
Love is healing.
Love is everything.
