Can Active Listening Make you Lonely?
S.V.Sreedhar, India
Listening is of vital importance in every tenet of human interactions, from ages to now, be it business or personal life.
But, surprisingly, I have observed that, the more a person is willing to listen or listens, the more likely he'll find himself more lonely, as the time passes.
Strange isn't it?

Listening Leading to Crowded Peek-ins
Arif ur Rehman, Professor, Pakistan
I tend to disagree with Sreedhar’s perspective that the more you listen to the lonelier you become with the passage of time. My own observations are quite the contrary.
The more one gives to active listening, the more he ‘has’ to reflect on – whether positive or negative – which provides him with greater insight into understanding the more subtle elements of interpersonal dialogue.
This enriches him and even when he may be all by himself sometimes, he will still be ‘crowded’ with peek-ins from other people’s lives.
