Many take the one-way, one-sided approach and only Value what comes out of their mouth.
The other side of Communication is what comes into your ear. It’s called Listening, and Listening is a skill.
Rate yourself as a Listener. Ask yourself if you are “loading up” when others converse with you.
This puts a major damper on Trust. Authentic Listening requires that you be a Receiver; without obstruction of Thought or Intention to be heard, listened to or the Need to be Right.
