Diffrence between hearing and listening

A lot of guys claim to listen, but most of the time they only hear.

Hearing and listening are two different things. Hearing is mechanical and primarily involves the ear. While listening involves not only the ear, but the brain to process what is being said.

If there is a chance where someone has opened their heart to you to a serious subject respect them, by listening.

It is blatantly obvious to see if you are listening or not: without eye contact, by fidgeting, blank stare, non responsive and etc.

I just wish you listened. Then maybe we wouldn't be in this predicament right now. Maybe you'd understand, until you fully understand it might be already too late.
