    Too often, if one cries wolf too much, no one wants to listen.
    I remember one time I had gotten something new… to wear and the person I was taking to had the nerve to say… “Oh, I didn’t see that. I don’t look at you when I talk to you.” Paying attention to whom ever is speaking is priceless. When I taught young children I always got down so that our faces were on the same level.

      Too true! I feel this in-person interaction is even worse these days with cell phones.

    Yes because there are so many true things we can say. Why not say the one wanted?

    Sadly the art of listening and looking like we are listening is getting lost… I see that very much in the younger generation I am always telling my grandson to stand still and look as if he is listening….

    yes.. but some people are exceptional listeners and others the talkers.. I have a friend I phone and I have to remind myself before I make the phone call that it will be a long conversation and she will do most the talking.. 😉

      You’re a good friend. Hopefully you have someone with whom you can talk more, as well.
