We've all heard that we're natural storytellers. It's how we've passed on histories and lessons and warnings through the ages - via fables, myths, narrative.
But our connection to story becomes a need to talk - a need to be heard.
So the greatest gift you can give someone else is, hear them. Listen. Let them talk.
You probably already have plenty of outlets in your life wherein you can talk about yourself; can you say the same -- with certainty -- about everyone else you talk with?
Ask questions, and listen to the answers.
Let the people you meet tell you their stories.
Imagine what you might learn, and be able to pass on, because you gave someone the gift of your receptive, curious silence.
