Being cared for as a person

Sometimes I think we get caught up in what we believe is right, how we believe this person ought to be and we smother the uniqueness of the individual.

When someone looks me in the eye asking, “How are you?”  and I know I can trust them to actually listen for the answer. To me, that is a priceless feeling.

So ….take a moment…. past the “I’m fine” answer of the person to hear all that he isn’t saying as well.  If you look closely, you may hear so much more.

Treating a person as a person makes all the difference in the world ~ to you and to the person with whom you are interacting.

Our world would be a brighter place if we all could do this!
