Empathy is focusing on the needs of the other person

Maintaining sensitivity for the good of all

Passion to help in a non judgemental way

Attitude of comforting with heartfelt love

Trusting in the obligation you perceive while listening

Yielding with dignity and respect for self and others


Listening is an attitude of the heart, a genuine desire

to be with another which both attracts and heals?

    1. Dear Laurie. Thank you for your comments. My Great Aunty Glenda whose poems these are has not written for quite some time but I’m sure she will be honoured to hear you asked if you could use one of her pieces in your classroom. Please do so. regards, Brooke.
