If you try, you can hear every word someone says. If you REALLY try, you can even hear what they’re not saying. So, REALLY try.
When you do MORE listening and LESS interrupting, you get less *erupting* and more Understanding. More or less? No, More AND Less.
How to be Understood: be Understanding FIRST.
The person who has not been heard is NOT interested in YOUR words. LISTEN to understand. SHARE your understanding.
