Listening without judgment

When you are told something upsetting or disappointing, do you listen to what is being said?

Do you try and listen to the perspective of the speaker and his/her feelings? Or do you wait for the chance to express your disappointment or disagree and turn the conversation back to you?

Disappointments are part of everyone’s life, be it families or friendship or any relationship.

But many a times, the thing you are disappointed about is far often less important than the message you convey by how you react.

Being respectful in the face of disappointment does not compromise your viewpoint, but it also does not compromise an atmosphere of love and concern.
