Talking is an art. Choosing the right words and not saying too much takes a lot of effort. Sometimes not saying anything is the best choice. The wrong words slip out and you can immediately see the damage written on a person's face.
We are all so very different and so wrapped up in our own way of seeing things. Sometimes I think if real heart-felt communication happens - it may be a miracle. Even though I live in the midst of a large family, I find myself spending a considerable amount of time alone, so when I have someone to talk to, someone to listen to, I find it, almost always, an enjoyable experience.
Everytime we are with someone or within a group of people it is an opportunity to be enlarged by the experience - if it is done well.
