Att lyssna

To listen

Of course we listen. Or..?

We like to think we are good listeners. In any relationship, communication is key. Not least the relationship we have with our children. So of course we listen! But not always, not every day, not when we're stressed, not when...(etc) And that's okay! The question is rather whether we listen the times we can listen. If we listen with half an ear even though we can be fully involved. If we have automated listening and presence because the rest of life spins so fast. If we have confused listen with hear..

So..what is listening? Dare we examine ourselves and our ability to listen? I'd love to hear from you! What is real listening? What do you do well and what do you want to get better at?
