Everyone has a story that not only desperately needs to be told, but absolutely, unequivocally needs to be heard. Are you THAT Person? Or do you make sure person after person walks past you without caring, ever really trying to even begin to hear, understand, wonder if indeed, this is the worst day of their life?
Did you hear what I didn’t say? Many don’t. . .but DID YOU?
I might not want to share. It might not feel safe. I don’t want to waste your time or bother you.
But. . . .
Wait, linger a second or two longer and you might not, in fact, hear what I didn’t say, but actually understand, empathize and even make the story lighter, easier to carry, tell, hear.
And. . .and yes, if it hasn’t happened yet or many times over, there will be THAT time when your story needs to be told, desperately heard by another defeated, unsuspecting Someone who too has a untold, unheard Story!
If we truly could see in the Hearts of another, we’d better hear what wasn’t said but needs noticing.
Be THAT Someone. . .Often. And repeat, always, more than necessary!
