“Without a listener, the healing process is aborted. Human beings, like plants that bend toward the sunlight, bend towards others in an innate healing tropism. There are times when being truly listened to is more critical than being fed. Listening to another’s pain is a primary form of nurturance, capable of healing even the most devastating of human afflictions…”
