It's that simple. Be quiet. Shut up and listen.
I need some practice in listening. In not just hearing but listening to what was said and taking the time to think about what was meant or intended.
Far too often I hear and then respond without enough pause. I jump and interupt when I know what the answer is or feel defensive (which only makes things worse).
If I shut up more maybe there will be a lot of things I haven't been hearing.
Maybe I'm missing everything.
Maybe I'll find all the answers.
