To listen is to love, to love is to understand. We find all around everybody wants to speak and there are very few who are ready to listen. No wonder today we have dearth of counselors. Institutions are looking for people who can listen non judgmentally with unconditional love.
They are willing to hire people for listening, because listening does a lot of wonders – when we listen with love, a lot of issues get resolved. I am happy to work as a counselor and I have trained myself to listen with love – and I have grown so much because of listening. I love what Carl Rogers, a psychologist who focused on person centered counseling, and client centred therapy says about listening as follows:
“When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, "Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it's like to be me." Carl Rogers
"Man's inability to communicate is a result of his failure to listen effectively." Carl Rogers
