I’m listening to the other side of the story.
People often engage in conversation where they wait impatiently to reply without truly hearing what the other person has said. We use our discussion as a platform to voice our ideas and beliefs.
Instead, I trust that the other person’s viewpoint is just as valuable as mine. If we are in conflict, I want to know if it is caused by misunderstanding or disagreement.
When I put aside my need to be right, I’m listening to the other side of the story.
