Always Liked Listening

I said to my councellor, I'm always listening to people, listening to their problems. She asked if this was because I wanted them to do the same in return. Almost offended I replied, 'No! I just love to listen to people's problems!'

Sometimes it's nice to have it returned, but I think what I get out of it is just knowing that someone trusted me enough to tell me things, and that I'm someone who can create a safe space for people to talk from their heart.

People need to listen to what we have to say just as we do for them. Like you I like to listen but I also like to be heard if I have a problem.
