What do you want to talk about?
Every conversation is an opportunity to ask that question.
Are you talking just for the sake of it? Or because you have something you absolutely have to say?
What about when someone is talking to you?
You get to choose how you respond. You get to choose whether you respond.
Are you afraid of silence? Or are you actually interested in learning something?
There’s no right or wrong. But we have to be aware of the decisions we’re making.
Conversations teach us things about people.
We just have to make sure we’re listening.
