My listening well and hearing you does not mean I will change

I give the gift of listening and hearing openly and respectfully. This id no evidence that I will change either me or you. My beliefs are safe in waiting because I've chosen to listen at this moment. I've also chosen trust you to make your own changes if and when you choose to without my advice or prodding. Listening and hearing do not mean changing. However, the relationship we build by listening openly and respectfully could change us both.
