Sometimes, all we need is a good set of ears and an empathetic person.

When someone is actively listening to us, we feel validated. We feel heard as if someone cares.

It’s not as easy as it sounds, but a good listener goes a long ways.

We can all benefit from such a person in our lives who knows what it means to show up, keep their mouths closed and listen.

And we’ll be there for them the next time around.
