Listening has become overrated.
This question has been in my mind for sometime now...do we listen as much as we speak?
Have you ever tried sitting in a room where everyone is talking all at once continuously? It is like many horses neighing at once. Your head would feel like it's trying to explode with all unintelligible sound. It ceases to be a conversation at that point and just becomes plain old noise.Yeah, it's not pleasant. Also it wouldn't get anyone anywhere.
Unfortunately, that's what's happening now days. Every single person wants to voice out their opinion. It's not a bad thing. In fact, it's a valuable gift that democracy has given us. The freedom of speech. Thanks to the technology it is possible!
Everyone, everywhere, even in the remote corners of the world are able to connect with one another with the help of the internet and social media. It is a blessing. Because hey, my blog exists due to that. We are all so excited and eager to share what's on our mind that we ignore anyone else. Listening has become overrated. Everyone wants to be heard. But, if we all keep talking who is gonna be there to listen?
To Speak or not to speak
We have forgotten the art of listening and I don't just mean hearing. But, actually, legitimately listening to another person. Because, apparently everyone should and must have an opinion on every single thing even if they don't know anything about it! Because everyone wants to be the "Original and Cool" guy who has a different thought on the matter even if sometimes the said thought does not make sense in any way.
If you wanna know, I'm a huge talker. I'm one of those people who loves talking just for the sake of it and it's hard to get me to shut up. So, I decided that from this day I would listen to people a little more and take into consideration their opinion
I understood that I wasn't to decide whether To speak or not to speak.
It was to listen as much as to speak.
