Consider the Other

How many of us truly consider the other person when we communicate with them? Most of the time, we don’t really think about it. We simply say what we want to say however we want to say it, and expect the other person to hear us the way we want them to.

The problem with this approach is that if we do not consider the nature of the person we are speaking to, what we want to get across often falls on deaf ears simply because that person does not know how to hear us.

The Rav used to say to me, "Never speak to a person in a tone or in a way that they will not understand you. Always speak on the level where they will be able to accept what it is you need to say."

Part of effective communication is learning to step outside of ourselves and to truly consider the other person. Doing so is how we inject sharing Light energy into our conversations.
