# 25 Of Reflections What is it that makes pity so painful?

What is it that makes pity so painful?
By Mary K. Mennenga

If it's happened to you, you know what I mean!
It's beyond painful it destroys trust
It can be over come with understanding
And a willingness not to judge
By not allowing yourself to stand in judgment
Seeing the ability as well as the inability
Of communicating feelings isn't easy when you love and care for someone
Interpreting words from heart to heart is harder still
The heart knows feeling just not always the right words
To convey what a person's true feelings are
Instead of focusing on the words that were used
Actively listen with your heart
Focusing on the heart behind the words
That's where the true meaning will be found

For me, actions speak louder than words, and this includes the subconscious actions of body language. The ears listen, the heart feels, and the eyes see.
