Sometimes we forget that people really need people.  From your best friend to a stranger in the street, we all have hard times and we all need a sympathetic ear every once in a while. 

Listen.  It can be hard to do, people are tempted to give advice which is fine if it is sound, but the best way to support someone is to show them that you care enough to hear them out. 

If you can tell that someone is depressed, frustrated, angry, heartbroken, dissapointed... take them aside and listen, chances are they will feel better just to vent. 

With all the uncertainty in the world today it is easy for people to get down, if we are going to make a difference in the world, lets start with the people around us!

This action was posted to another change as well, but it is so powerful, so helpful and so important...also I do not know how to share actions among changes without duplicating them.  You can have too much of a good thing, but not this thing...

      Not only should we listen to what people say, we should listen to what they do not say. Sometimes it's body language, tone of voice, and especially the look in someone's eye.

      Sometimes it's all that's left unsaid that speaks volumes.

      I am more of a listener than a talker.
