A friend sent me this short video. It’s an excellent clip on being a good and empathetic listener.
I’m sure we’ve all experienced lots of the opposite (especially the “at least” listeners), but as moms, couldn’t we all use some empathy? Someone to listen and just be with us amidst the struggles, amidst the sleepless nights, the frustrations with our own limitations, the feelings of helplessness when we watch our children struggle with school or friends or health? We’re in this together. Let’s support each other. Let’s listen.
