I listened to his response & answered - he then went on to tell me an anecdote about something that had happened to him in the past. I listened attentively and when he was done gave him my reaction to his story.
I can have a hard time with this since I always seem to be thinking about how I'm going to respond or I jump in and say something before the person is finished.
As we went our separate ways, he said "It was nice seeing you"... I continue to recognize how these kindness practices bring change to my life...
