Helpless

I like to help others. What I have found that being a good listener is a good way to help others. Being a good listener does not mean being quiet while the other person speaks waitng for your turn to share. Listening means hearing what the person is saying. Looking at them while they are speaking and considering everything they say even if you do not agree. When it is my family hurting and I can not do anything to stop the pain, there pain becomes my pain. I feel hopeless and sometimes I get angry because the situation is something that I can not help.

I agree, a good listener let's the person speaking know you're listening and actually cares about what (s)he says.
