Try to listen to the people speaking to you.

Truly tune in to their words, their movements, their mannerisms.

Delve into the conversation by listening to each syllable of theirs.

Don’t think too much…

Respond naturally, not harping on what you’ll say when they pause.

Be there for them when they need you, and try to notice the signs when they do.

Breathe, listen, and be in the moment.
