No one would talk much in society
if they knew how often they misunderstood others.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Expressing, explaining, conveying…simply stating how we fell is often quite difficult. Whether it is at work, home or at a restaurant, sometimes we just can’t seem to say what we want. Have you ever tried to have a conversation with somebody in a crowded coffee shop and found it difficult to concentrate on what you are saying because some loud mouthed so-and-so is blabbing far too loudly far too close to you? Well that is what it feels like when your brain wants to say x and your heart (emotions) blurt out y [or vice versa]. You end up staring at the person’s face before you and panicking about what you just said. Unable to recapitulate the situation your fall to a quick demise.
Mis-communication is simply put, awful. All I can say is sometimes it’s best to keep things as basic as possible. Perhaps going back to our neanderthal manners, utter short sentences, perhaps a few gutteral sounds, use your hands and make it quick. (This is not a recipe for a quickee…. although it can be).
Now, the irony of this post is that I may have failed to communicate what it is I am trying to say.
It is 1:30 am and perhaps my brain is too fried to communicate anything other than “zzzzzzzzz” and “zzzzzzzzz” again.
‘Till tomorrow fair friends.
