We don't listen to understand... We listen to give a reply.

Sometimes without really "understanding".

That's a problem with bad communication

True, especially these days when so much communication is through text, so much information is lost like body language and feelings.

[@641615,Scarfface] or one reads so fast..

[@536386,Gaiia] I'm guilty of that, I think I know what I've read and it's something completely different 🙄

I do think this is true for a lot of people.
Mindfulness and meditation stills the mind, which actually slows you down. You basically start being more present.

[@1196310,Mellowgirl] I agree it's very important to slow down, and just.. React and react.. Controlled by the endless flow of emotions.
I keep reading your posts ... so I can reply with "but, you are incredibly beautiful!"

Will keep reading!

Yea, I know ... that is exactly your point

Yes. Some people are so eager to respond that they fail to listen.

To feel is to understand sometimes

[@420927,Phantome] but feelings can make you see things in a way that isn't real.. 😐
Phantome · 36-40, F
[@536386,Gaiia] I think emotions and feelings are part of how we really understand . We can act differently towards our feelings but sometimes they are the only truth that we can depend on as reality
