Sometimes I go through phases where I cannot seem to make myself understood, no matter how I say something. The person I am talking to may be responding to what they are hearing, but it isn’t what I thought I said. Some words mean different things to different people, and we all bring different experiences to each conversation we have, so it is perhaps not surprising that sometimes we end up in a conversation that doesn’t seem to match up on both ends. The next time you find yourself on one side of a conversation like this. try stopping and saying something like, “Wait a minute, we don’t seem to be understanding each other very well. Let’s just start over.” And then do – it’s as simple as that. It’s not anyone’s fault, no one is right and no one is wrong. Try it.
