Frustration can quickly turn into emotional outbursts of anger or tears for you or them.
The fear that time is running out and that you are stuck, can leave you feeling trapped, alone and isolated with this problem.
All the time there is that nagging inner voice eating away at your own confidence because all you want is to be able to help.
Conversations leave you feeling more and more burdened, your shoulders become even heavier and your head is constantly feeling full. You feel like nobody understands what you’re going through, so you cannot ask for help.
Some say that you ‘take things too personally’ and that you should ‘just let it go’.
Did you know there are at least 8 different types of listening? With this in mind every person you listen to is likely to need a different type of listening depending on how they learn and their needs in the moment and you as the listener will need to be resourced to know when to adjust your listening.
You may need to listen for any number of different purposes and each require a different strategy.
You might be listening to:
-Puts their attention on their strengths for motivation and encouragement.
-Allow them time to express and therefore manage their emotions.
-Give them space and time to empty their thoughts, make decisions and prioritise their time.
-Guide them to listen to and trust their own inner wisdom.
