A Little Back Story

 

At the time of this writing, almost 15 years ago, I took the decision to embark on a journey to get me out of the bullshit depression feelings I've had after a bad breakup. 

Man! What a journey I've had.

As I was on this path of fixing my inner self, I've stumbled upon the understanding on having, lack of a better explanation or words,  an emotional and memorable conversation with the other party. You see, I'm an introvert. I never engage in conversations, barely.
People that I've connected with never will believe me nowadays if I told them I'm an introvert,to be honest. Years changed.

I put myself out there to meet more people, men and women alike. For connections and such.
Went on to more dates to get connected with more ladies along the way. For years.
The more I'm engaged in conversations, I've noticed patterns.

Well, to be fair, we do know that women think with the emotions. Men on the other hand think based on logic.
To engage based on emotions may be a challenge to most men. (If you are reading this, you will not be after this)
Women on the other hand are easier for them. They are created that way.

I believe what I'm going to share here will be beneficial for both men and women anyways.

Tip 1: The Power of Presence

Creating the Space for Authentic Expression

Empathic listening begins with your presence. True connection requires a space that fosters open expression without fear of rejection or judgment. Remove diversions, maintain sustained eye contact, and let your physical gestures affirm your all-encompassing focus on the here and now. By setting aside your own thoughts and worries, you allow the other person's emotions and experiences to take center stage. This is where the magic of empathic listening begins.

Tip 1 Action Step:

Practice being fully present in your conversations today. Put away your phone, maintain eye contact, and resist the urge to interrupt. Let the other person speak without feeling rushed or judged.

Tip 2: Listen to Understand, Not to Respond 

Going Beyond Words to Grasp Emotions 

Empathic listening goes beyond hearing words; it's about understanding the emotions and feelings behind those words. Instead of formulating your response while the other person is speaking, focus on absorbing what they're saying. Pose thought-provoking queries to gain a deeper understanding of their opinions and emotions. The bridge between your heart and theirs allows for deeper empathy.

Tip 2 Action Step:

Choose a conversation partner and make a conscious effort to listen for emotions rather than just the content. Ask follow-up questions that dig deeper into their feelings and experiences.

 

Tip 3: Validation and Empathy

Creating a Connection Through Validation

Validation is a powerful tool in empathic listening. Fostering this understanding is critical through empathic communication. Though you may not concur with their perspectives entirely, acknowledging the genuineness of their feelings is essential. Empathetic statements like “I understand how you feel” or “I'm here for you” can help build strong connections and a secure environment in any relationship.

Tip 3 Action Step:

In your next conversation, practice validating the other person's emotions. Use phrases like “I understand what you're saying” and “Your feelings are important.”

Now, take the leap and immerse yourself in the wonder of empathic listening, witnessing how your connections morph into lovely symphonies of affection and unity.
