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.
