Being present and listening with understanding creates a deep bonding experience. Some psychologists believe that the ability to listen to another, understand their point of view and empathize with them is one of the highest forms of intelligence. When people bond, a hormone is released called Oxytocin. This hormone is called the "love hormone."
"When you have a strong connection with someone, you feel comfortable being your real self. When you experience being misunderstood, the connection between you and the other person is severed. When we actively share with others sharing deep secrets, sharing whats on our mind, sharing our fears, our dreams and our aspirations, the brain lights up. When we are sharing transparently and without judging or filtering it activates a high level of oxytocin.
