We can help people by listening to them. Just to listen, without judgment, without expectation, and with compassion and love, is a great gift. Emotions that are trapped inside, and fears, and doubts and hopes and guilt... they all spill out. And relief and restoration follow their release. Listening is an under-utilized act of love. It fixes what's broken and opens what's been locked shut.
I don't have to share my two cents about everything. I listen to others quietly, without an agenda, and from the heart.
