Good listeners

Hard to find. In my pain I need above all to be listened to. It is rare to find good listeners so I have found the Samaritans are so good.

Most people in life keep interrupting, feeling they must fill silences with incessant words. They think distracting you from your grief is best somehow.
Yet I find that is the exact opposite of what is required. A sympathetic person who just sits still and actually listens and understands you, that is a rare thing.
This is why people go for counselling and in many cases pay for therapy, just to be listened to.

Hi Rachel50,

Thank you so much for sharing this with the community :blue_heart: Iā€™m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I just wanted to let you know that you have been heard and you are not alone.

Take good care,
