well...yes. thats all we do. until we dont.


Yeah he does. I'm just not a good talker sometimes

Ja wel maar niet altijd even goed

I listen to him. Enjoy it though, dont i have enough of myself already.

I believe he does on certain things. He may not acknowledge that he's heard me but his actions afterwards show that he does.

He is trying to be better at it and that makes me happy. We both have a lot of work of work this Category, because we still fall into bad habits of: Interpreting, correcting,assumptions, Prove wrong,Taking offense, bringing up the past, Psycho analyzing. And last but not least validation Because the main reason for communicating your feelings in the first place is to be validated. we've had our good days of communicating and sometimes we catch yourself when we haven't and we correct it.

Yes, all the time :)

There are many levels of listening. If we are talking about the details of the day, it's not necessarily "active" listening. It's more about communicating facts. On the other hand, if we are talking emotions, feelings, and deeper issues, we typically take time to find a quiet place, face each other, and talk. This involves much more "active" listening - and a much higher focus on making sure the receiver understands the message the sender is trying to communicate.

Sometimes but then she gets tired of listening to me and starts facebooking. I hate facebook.

Yes. He gives amazing advice(:

I think sometimes we hear what the other person is saying without really trying to understand what they mean.. Especially in the heat of the moment.
