It's a communication break down. Everyone is talking, but no nobody's listening.
While they're talking do you hear their words? Do you close them off and keep talking? Do you stop and listen to what they're saying? What do you do? How do you get them to stop and just listen to you?
Has this happened in your life? Which side of the conversation have you been on and how well did the conversation go? How we communicate with those in our lives is important. Do you listen to understand or do you listen to talk? How well do you communicate with and listen to those in your life? Do you feel listened to in yours?
Sometimes what we hear is not what is being said. We can take what we hear and put our own emotions on it. We can misconstrue the message in the words. Sometimes when we talk we're sharing our experiences, putting ourselves into their situation instead of just listening. Has this ever happened to you?
Our communication skills can be improved and we can learn how to talk to and even listen to one another. But first we must learn to listen to understand...to learn how we can support one another. If your conversations always include everyone talking but nobody listening...stop and take the time to truly listen...to hear their words and all that they mean.
take good care of you and each other...and please...open your ears and really listen to each other. We all want and need to be heard but we can't do that if we're always talking over one another.
