I’m realizing more and more how important listening is to my growth.The last couple of weeks have brought so many helpful opportunities for me to listen to others through social media, often in the form of opinions with which I disagree. Listening to those with whom I disagree not only helps me think critically about my beliefs and opinions, but also helps me better understand those with whom I disagree. That better understanding helps me to appreciate people, even when I do not agree with them. I have so much room for growth. I really want to listen.
