Thanks for sharing your experience on this!!! If I could just practice that one simple idea that you shared... more often... I know that my life would be much better off! Sometimes, even when I'm slowly talking, I forget that my tone of voice and facial expressions can be transmitting an entirely different message... than my words are saying.
I think faster than my mouth can keep up! (Or, my fingers... when typing a message
) And, I tend to be blunt, bland and frank about things... instead of more carefully choosing my words. Seems like this is going to be a lifetime job to attain more improvement for me! And, that's not such a bad deal. Keeps me busy... and keeps me out of places that I'd rather not be!
