This is so true and have said it on numerous occasions. To have a true conversation you must actually LISTEN to what the other person is saying. I have too many conversations with people that quickly jump to what they want to say before I'm finished with what I'm saying. Very frustrating. Someday Ill finish my interpersonal communications degree and teach on this subject.
So many things to be thankful. Wish others saw how much time, money, and energy they are wasting because they bought into a corporation marketing campaign that they need what they have to be happy and miss what is really important in life.
