It has come up a lot. Listening is a major part of my job. But along the way I lost effective listening outside of HIV Prevention Counseling and Testing. When in conversations with friends it’s mostly about me. Everything relates back to me. I have to give that up and realize listening to people is not self sacrificing my own opinions and attributes. Listening is telling the person i understand them and I care about what they are saying.
I decided to start my 100 Day Challenge Season 2 today.
