How often in our live we confuse listening with hearing

To Listen

There is no doubt that one of those senses held so dear
Is being blessed with have that ability to distinctively hear
But in most cases this can be a complicated situation
Since many seem have to differentiate between to hear and to listen

A friend may at some time get burden with the weight of a problem
And being supportive provides that willing ear on each and every session
But when that moment come when you need them to reciprocate
It will be very difficult to get them in any way a moment to take

It is so comforting when a person has that look on the face so puzzling
And some takes the time out not to talk but just sit there listening
At the end there will be that look that show such relief and jubilation
Indicating that there is that lifting off of a very heavy and uncomfortable burden

How can one in a setting be able to decipher any sort of information?
If in the first instance is not expressed in very articulate communication
So that the listener can by effective listening can make that interpretation
Therefore systems, processes and procedures can flow in the proper direction

That is why those who in practicing profession ensure they are so focus
So that they can understand a client when in a session they discuss
Thus wanting to be sure that there is very limited distraction
Hence given the client what is best solution to the given problem?

And parent too in most cases try to out on that mantle of being omniscient
So they seem to forget that the children have now reached that stage if being and adolescent
Still believing that they have solutions, and know what is best for them
Instead of just take a step back and listen to what is they are saying

Therefore we all must try to separate what is hearing from listening
Because by focusing on the former we can say or do something quite embarrassing
But when there is that effort to take that moment to listen
This always get some form of respect and move in a positive direction


Confusion, Deaf, Misinterpretation, Misrepresentation
