This is so true and have said it on numerous occasions. To have a true conversation you must actually LISTEN to what the other person is saying. I have too many conversations with people that quickly jump to what they want to say before I'm finished with what I'm saying. Very frustrating. Someday Ill finish my interpersonal communications degree and teach on this subject.
a friend posted this for a classroom sign idea. love it. I also just love this truth. Isn't it funny how we all 'preach' at eachother on facebook and pinterest now with all these signs? ;) Go ahead and preach, I guess. ... ...Everyone is doing it ;) ha!
