Hearing and listening are two different things. When you hear, you do not try to understand what the other person is saying. When you listen, you also read between the lines and try to understand the person talking. Listening can help a lot of people to cheer up, avoid depression, make new friends and overall, avoid a conflict. Because when you listen, you understand. You may help a person avoid doing something hasty by listening. If everyone wants to talk, be different! Be the one to listen. Be a blessing to others. Make a difference.
