How do I get my husband to listen to me?

I'm always listening to my husband, but it feels like he never listens to me.

How do I get my husband to listen to me instead of me listening to him all the time?

One of the keys to a successful and loving marriage is respectful communication. Have you talked to your husband about this in a calm and respectful way? You would have to bring this to his attention in a way that doesn’t put him on the defensive because it could very well be that he doesn’t realize he is doing this. An idea of how you could bring this up to him is by letting him know that you love him so much and you are sure that he probably doesn’t do this intentionally but you’ve been feeling unheard when you tell him things. See what he says after you let him know this. Couples therapy could also help you both very much with issues like this that come up.
