Ever get the feeling that everyone is talking, texting, running, and no one is listening?
When I was a kid, my parents would scold me if I interrupted someone before they finished talking. I’m noticing that fewer and fewer people are listening these days. It’s almost like they just want to hear themselves talk. (I guess that sounds kinda accusatory.) Maybe they have some reason, like a fear of NOT being heard, who knows. But I’ve had many conversations where my attempts to be a good listener have ended in a one way conversation where the other person walked away smiling, and I stood there with my jaw hanging open.
Anyone else notice this?
