Listening should be Easy, but it's not!

Listening seems so easy, right? Well, it's not. I have to say and be honest about how listening to others may seem like the easiest thing in the world, even the most natural but it's sad to say that it's not. Really listening to others and put our own thoughts always is not easy pie. So, the first thing we should try is to let others finish their ideas, which is one the hardest things to do because immediately another person is talking we're unconsciously jumping to conclusions and possible ideas of what that person might say, which at the end it's never what we think it will be. The second would be to learn not to be judgemental since when we are, we are blocking ourselves to the possibility of understanding others as they deserve.

Listening is not being able get words, it's the ability to understand another person's ideas, feelings and believes. So let's try our best to be listeners and not talkers, of course remembering that sometimes words are as necessary as silence.
