“Talking is always positive. That’s why I talk too much.” ~Louis C.K.
Do you enjoy talking to a great friend? To someone who cares and listens to what you have to say? We talk all the time, every day, to so many different people! Sometimes we are talking to our parents, our teachers, our kids, our spouse, our friends, etc., etc. But do you pay attention to how you talk? Do you really listen to what others are telling you? Do you make eye contact and let the other person know you are listening?
Talking is typically our biggest form of communication and with technology these days, sometimes I feel like we just don’t do enough of it! Also, it’s super important to feel like you can talk! Isn’t it? Imagine how much we would keep bottled up inside if we didn’t talk about how we felt, what we did, and who we saw in our day! This evening, really reflect on who you talked to today, how much you talked, how much they talked, and how pleasant your conversation was! TALKING IS IMPORTANT!!!! It is so important that you as a wonderful individual know that you CAN talk!! Sometimes we get so distracted in our own world with our texting and IM’ing, and all that we do over a screen and keyboard that sometimes we forget about the people sitting right next to us! 🙂 Make sure you ask how someone else’s day was! It could make all the difference in the their world and also in yours! 🙂
I could guess that most of us, if not all of us, probably met our best of friends by simple words like, “Hello!” and “What’s your name?” Perhaps you met them by something funny that happened! I have met many wonderful people that way but it all starts with a positive conversation and a gesture of kindness!! 🙂 Just take some time to reflect on how much you talk to people, face to face! It is so healthy to say how you feel, how you are doing, and what you are proud of and then to ask the same of someone else! We all need friends and family to talk to! 🙂
Remember: The less you think, the more you talk!
“You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.” ~ Anatole France
