Listen…  Stop.  Think…  Reply…


Any conversation is easy if it follows that sequence, right?  But what if we’re just hearing the same old things over and over again, will we still listen to it?  I think it will be more like:

Listen. Stop.  Nod/Grunt/Mumble to show agreement.


What if it’s already way too predictable and already getting on our nerves?  Our pattern would be like this:

Listen. Interrupt. Reply.

In our case, our conversation is like this:

I talk.  You interrupt.  You talk.  I interrupt.  I shout.  The neighbors listen.


Will we ever get out of that cycle?
