“Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person they are almost indistinguishable.”
– David Augsburger
Being heard is BEING LOVE. As humans, we communicate our hearts through our words, gestures, facial expressions, subtle sighs, and intonation of our voice. We open ourselves up to be heard by another. We expose deep scars, old regrets, values, passions, desires, and fears in our stories.
We share to be heard. To be understood. To align values with another. To connect. And we are heard by those who are invested, who intend to hear, who desire to connect, who selflessly drop their own protective armor, exposing themselves to a raw and open gesture of connection.
Both sides of this dynamic are naked and willing to hear, and ultimately to BE love.
There is bravery in hearing. This vulnerability might get messy; but this is life- absolutely and beautifully messy. Embrace it. Never miss a chance to dance. Never miss a chance to listen and hear and love. Be Love. ❤️
