Listen to me, and I’ll listen to you

Listen to Me When I'm feeling emotional, all I want is for people to listen to me. It's upsetting when  I express my feelings, and the person on the other end doesn't respond; it hurts.

The Box is Open But You Don’t Have to Look At Everything Inside

Facing What’s Not Working
