Is There More?
As mentioned previously, listening is an art and can benefit your relationship connection immensely.
A great question to ask your partner or spouse when you are listening, is ‘Is there more?’…and of course to really mean it!
A very simple three-word question that shows you are interested and happy to listen to whatever else your other half would like to share.
A suggestion when listening…
- Try listening with an open heart
- Try listening without judgement
- Try listening without planning your response
- Try listening to completely understand the other
- Try asking ‘Is there more?’ when the other person has finished speaking
Try it out with the people in your life!
See what happens!
