Day #10 Kindness Challenge
Listen to others wholeheartedly without judging them!
Have you ever had a conversation with someone and as soon as you started speaking, you know they have already made up their mind about what you were saying?
Yes, I’m sure....we’ve all been there. I’m going to ask you to consider how that felt for you?
Maybe thoughts like: waste of time, disrespected, unloved, unseen, condemned... come to mind.
That is the effect of listening with judgment. Listening like you already know the answers.
What if you choose to listen with curiosity today instead of judgment?
What if you listened like your life depended on it and really paid attention to the other in the conversation?
Dallas Willard says, “the first act of love is the giving of attention”
