Because listening is an active choice of love, its greatest enemies are apathy and busyness. Most of us would never intentionally abuse our children, but all of us are tempted at times to stop listening to them, even though listening is the active force of love. Let me be blunt: to stop listening is to stop loving. Love is not about what you don’t do; it’s about your movement toward someone. The opposite of love is not hatred; it’s apathy.
