Listening and Loving – No Matter What

Sometimes I don’t feel like talking.

Sometimes I don’t feel like listening to you talk, either.

Sometimes I just want quiet and space.

And when I’m feeling that way, it’s hard to tell you….because I don’t want to talk!

I’m not expecting you to read my mind.

I don’t want you to figure it out for me.

What I’d like is for you to notice me and offer me your listening love, even when I don’t ask for it directly.

I don’t know exactly what that might look like.

I’m hoping you might know.

Maybe a smile?

A nod of the head indicating that you see me?

Maybe you’re humming to yourself?

If you ask me when I do want to talk, I might could tell you what I would like when I don’t want to talk.

Would you try that?

Maybe I will try telling you when I do want to talk…

Thanks for reading me right now when I want to write!

See you tomorrow?
