Let’s Talk About LOVE

“We were born with two ears and one mouth so we could listen more than we can speak” (Epictetus, Greek Philosopher). In the world of motivational interviewing, LOVE is an action word made up of four verbs: L to Listen, O to Offer, V to validate and E to empathize. Motivational Interviewing emphasizes the “spirit” of how we are with people, being able to empathize with them and walk side by side with them in their journey, and most importantly to LISTEN to them. If only we could take these action steps, walk side by side with others, and empathize with their situation, what a wonderful world this would be.
