Adults are saying kids aren’t going to be able to talk to each other because they are constantly texting instead of talking. By the way it appears many adults are falling into that same dark, non-verbal hole.
While thinking about this, it dawned on me people who don’t talk also lose their ability to listen. To really hear someone when they are talking, you have to give them your attention.
It drives me crazy when people on TV interrupt each other. Are they afraid they won’t get their allotted time on camera? As a viewer it makes what any one of them is saying impossible to hear. Everybody loses. On the political scene (holy moly) people don’t want to hear an opposing point of view so they interrupt and talk louder than the other person.
Listening Seekers, what are your thoughts?
