Echo 20 Dec 2018
Communication is sometimes like an echo
With communicating it may happen that I hear as answer only something like the echo of my own words.
That may have various reasons. But usually it does not feel like I am connected to the party(s) I communicate to.
Sometimes I hear hear only some echo of my own thoughts.
The listener remains silent.
I am certainly not connected. When trying to communicate I stay with my own thinking (the echo). I might be fixed only on what I want.
I may have little attention or respect for the listener. The listener may feel hurt by me.
Perhaps I can tell the listener that I value him or her.
What does the echo of my own voice tell me?
Perhaps I am too loud or overwhelming.
Perhaps I am disappointed with the listener and I repeat my last message.
Perhaps I am not quiet enough to listen to the answer.
Perhaps the other one is afraid of me.
When I hear just my own echo:
I am alone.
