Have you ever had someone really listen to you? I don't just mean sort of listening but listening with their whole body. The first time I had this experience was when I finally saw a counselor. I felt seen and heard on a level I had never experienced before. The way he reflected back to me what I was saying so I could hear myself along with the compassion and empathy he showed, made for a very healing experience. I too am good at listening deeply and showing compassion and empathy for others, however, I am not so good at doing it for myself. Sometimes until I write something down or talk about it with someone, I can't pin down how I'm feeling other than a general sense of anxiety. I try my best to listen to myself and respond in a helpful way, but I have to be intentional about it. Do you do the same?
