Wisdom isn’t always rooted in old-fashioned, high quality, psychological advice. The act of quieting our mind to listen and understand the troubles of another is wisdom in and of itself. Quiet wisdom is confident and mature, it understands that my “shoes” are different from yours and my ways are not always the best. Quiet wisdom acknowledges that most of the time people just need to be heard, listened to, and loved – without judgement.
Quiet wisdom unites souls and bandages the emotional wounds of the heart.
Next times someone needs advice, trying listening instead of talking.
