Listen! All I asked was that you listen … not talk … or do. Just hear!
Advice is cheap. Twenty cents will get you both Dear Abby and Billy Graham in the same newspaper.
And I can do for myself. I’m not helpless. I’m discouraged and faltering.
When you do something for me that I can and need to do for myself, you contribute to my fear and inadequacy.
So … please … listen and just hear me.
And if you want to talk, wait a minute for your turn, and I’ll listen to you.
