The gift of listening

Yesterday I was at a training on Youth Mental Health First Aid. One of the key components of the training was the ability to listen without judgment. They shared the story of Kevin Hines who attempted suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. He stated that if only one person had asked how he was and then truly listened on his bus ride to the bridge, he wouldn’t have jumped. Listening is a gift of the human spirit. Share it often. ❤️
