It’s amazing how much you can learn about someone. Even your closest friends, if you just ask them more questions and then actually listen.
I’ve probably written about this before (I’ve realized pretty quickly with this daily writing experiment that there is no way to avoid overlap, and in fact, it’s a good thing).
But seriously, asking, listening, then asking more brings so much value to both parties in a conversation. Moving past the superficial actually brings more love (or gratitude, or understanding, or empathy, or connection) into the world. It’s almost like you create something from nothing and make the world a better place.
Try it out.
