A careless word may kindle strife,
a cruel word may wreck a life,
a timely word may level stress,
a loving word may heal and bless.




When I ask you to listen to me, and you start giving me advise
You have not done what I asked.
When I ask you to listen to me, and you begin to tell me 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 problem,
You have failed me, strange as that may seem.
LISTEN . . .
All I asked, was that you LISTEN.
Not to talk, or do . . . just hear me.
When you do something for me that I can and need to do for myself,
You contribute to my fear and weakness.
But, when you accept as a simple fact that I do feel
what I feel no matter how irrational.
Then I can quit trying to convince you and can get about the business of
understanding what's behind this irrational feeling.
And, when that's clear, the answers are obvious and I don't need advice.
Irrational feelings make sense when we understand what's behind them.
So, please LISTEN and just hear me..
And, if you want to talk, wait a minute for your turn:
Then, I'll LISTEN to you . . .
