Listening can be hard to hear. It is not uncommon in romantic relationships or friendships to be planning out the next thing we want to say, while also listening to what our partner/friend is currently saying. Since it is easy to fall into this pattern, we risk the chance of only focusing on what we want to say and need. Try listening only to what your partner or friend says at least once a day to practice healthy listening skills. Soon you may find that you need to say less to connect more.
