50 Words: Wired

the biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand

“You’re laughing at me.”

“I’m not laughing at you.”

“WHAT?”

“Nothing. You’re just so… wired.”

“I’m upset. Do you want me to show you how this feels and give you an idea?”

“Hey, take a chill pill. Remember, you can’t do anything about anything.”

“I know that. It’s not helping.”

  1. I encountered this on facebook a couple of days ago and since then it kept nagging on me. As much as I take pride in being an excellent listener, I was guilty of listening just to make a retort while I was playing counselor to friends who are on the verge of divorce. Sad. I can’t believe I was guilty of this.
