On showing interest in other people!
We can all improve as people and as empathic beings if we take the time to genuinely listen to and learn from those around us.
I am asked frequently how people can support me, and it's easy — and I am thankful for that, so please, a kind sharing of this issue, a mention on your socials, or if you like, you can buy me coffee.
An important topic that came up on a call I was on with four other people today was the need to demonstrate a genuine interest in others. I had never considered the topic in such a light before, so it was a valuable learning experience.
These days, it's easy to get wrapped up in one's own issues and ambitions to the point where one loses sight of the need of taking time out to genuinely care for the well-being of those around oneself.
Taking an interest in the well-being of those around us has a multiplicative effect on our own happiness and the happiness of those around us. It can be quite beneficial to our own development to take the time to learn about the backgrounds, passions, and challenges of those around us.
One of the best things about showing interest in other people is that it helps to strengthen relationships that are already there.
When a person believes that they are being listened to and appreciated, they are more likely to be open and honest with individuals in their immediate environment.
It is possible to demonstrate an interest in other people by doing something as simple as asking them questions, listening carefully to the stories and viewpoints that they share, or participating in activities that they find enjoyable.
If we show interest in the lives of the people around us, we can build strong, meaningful relationships that might last a lifetime.
Understanding who we are and what we do in the world is easier when we learn from the experiences of those around us.
The lessons we learn can help us improve our own lives and the world around us. We can all improve as people and as empathic beings if we take the time to genuinely listen to and learn from those around us.
