Hello, as i am getting back into counselling mode i thought i would re post this poem that i put up when i first started blogging.
To me it sums up how you feel when you just want somebody to listen to you.
As i future counsellor i hope that i follow the sentiment of this poem and have the ability to help people by genuinely listening to their problems.
So next time somebody tells you about a problem of theirs, Just Listen.
I hope you like it.
" When i asked you to listen to me and you start
Giving me advice, you have
Not done what i asked.
When i ask you to listen to me and you begin
To tell me why I shouldn't feel that way, you are
Trampling on my feelings.
When i ask you to listen to me and you feel you have
To do something to solve my problems,
You have failed me, strange as that may seem.
LISTEN! All I asked was that you listen,
Not talk, or do- just hear me."
