Sometimes you just need to LISTEN… from The Daily Driver Project

Many times in my adult life, I have found that you sometimes just need to keep your mouth shut. Not like in a negative way, but a supportive way.

People need to vent, bounce ideas off and sometimes confess. In this hectic world of ours there still needs to be that face time.

Last weekend a friend of mine and I spent a good part of a car show just talking. Not about the cars that were there, but about life and he really needed to talk. So I shut my mouth and listened, added things sparingly to the conversation.

Kept an open heart and mind and just let him flow. You can learn a lot about someone by just simply listening.

Who they are, what are their dreams, their history and so much more. The things that make up us being a human being can sometimes just spill out in a conversation which can also make the friendship stronger.

Always remember that a great listener is a great conversationalist.

Because you are able to listen, you then can respond accordingly… which sometimes can change the perspective of someone’s whole day. Hopefully for the better.

Keep those ears open, as well as your mind. You never know where or what a simple conversation will produce.
