we most want to say
to find sometimes.
within the heart.
That is, IF we are sincere in what we say.
Ever pass someone you know, they say "hi...how are you"? and you start to tell them how you really are, only to have them walk right on past you, not really wanting to know how you are? Or the same thing happens, and you begin to tell them what's going on in your life only to have them interrupt and say they have to run, and leave you there...tongue hanging out, all worked up about what it was you were saying, needing so badly to talk about it, but now, well.... you can't. All you see is the back of their head.
When you say something, mean it. Don't say what you think people want to hear, speak truth.
And sometimes, let someone in. Let someone in your world and/or heart. Be kind, be gentle, be open to hear. Stop talking for a bit and let someone else talk. Some people only need talk a bit and you have totally turned their day around for them. When we stop talking and listen, we make the other person feel like they matter.
Go gently out into the world tomorrow, and try to let someone know.... "Hey, you matter."

suz, I remember a time a few years ago, when I had several friends and relatives that were having problems. They would phone me and I would listen to them as long as they wanted to talk. I finally got so bogged down with their problems that I didn't think I could listen to another one of them. I phoned each of these friends in turn, and not one of them had the time to even spend a few minutes with me. That really hurt.|
