Love is listening with your full heart. If you want to gain some ones trust, listen to him or her. Listen with your full heart. Thats how you would listen.
Remove all intent to reply while you are listening. Just listen with the intent of understanding, genuine, considerate, true understanding. Put yourself in the person’s shoes and imagine how it would be like to be at his or her place and how would that person shall be feeling right now while he or she is saying all this. Feel the emotions hidden underneath the words.
If for once you truly listen, you would feel connected. You would gain trust previously never felt. You would find a strong bond, that never existed. That’s true listening. That’s love!
