When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving advice, You have not done what I asked.
When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn’t feel that way, You are trampling on my feelings.
When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problems, You have failed me, strange as that may seem.
So please, just listen and hear me. And if you want to talk, wait a few minutes for your turn and I promise I’ll listen to you. (Anonymous)
