LIS­TEN, LIS­TEN, LIS­TEN

“Lis­ten for the mean­ing un­der­neath,” when you are speak­ing with some­body, Ul­brick coun­sels. “Look deeply,” she ad­vises.

Be present to other peo­ple. “Of­ten we don’t lis­ten enough to other peo­ple — maybe we’re lis­ten­ing to the words, but not to the mes­sage. Maybe we’re al­ready think­ing about how we’re go­ing to re­spond, de­fend your­self and not lis­ten­ing — at the heart of a lot of re­la­tion­ship prob­lems is that we are all long­ing for some­one to hear us.”
