Lately, I have realised that we can do several acts of kindness if we just listen to people around us without any judgement, and are mindful of the words we speak.
My daughter used to complain that I do not listen to her as I used to give solutions whenever she was upset about something. This made her feel that I was not respecting her and somewhere making her think she was wrong. Now, whenever she is upset, I am able to be with her just listening to her, speaking little and surprisingly, the bond is growing
