"When... someone really hears you without passing judgment on you, it feels damn good... When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-percieve my world in a new way and go on. It is astonishing how elements that seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens. How confusion that seems irremediable turns in to relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard" -Carl Rogers (quoted in Marshall Rosenbergs Nonviolent Communication book pg 113)
