Monday Chuckle for April Fool's Day!
Ever have trouble talking things through with some people?
It usually happens when one or both parties are digging their heels in pridefully unwilling to see the others point of view.
It usually means the person is not accessing empathy which is a higher brain function.
Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.
It just means we are giving a person space to share, process, explore; we are listening. It means we are curious to understand the other point of view, even if we don't agree with it and without judgment.
What if, you listened, pondered and even challenged your own thoughts, positions, and attitudes?
How would that one action improve your relationships?
