.: Disintegrated presence :.

The actual reality.

When I was working in the education industry;

We often listen to the words being spoken, yet we interpret those words in its literal context based on our pre-defined personal opinions, which may at times be judgmental, tenacious views. In that process we eventually fail to grasp what people are trying to convey.

Thus, before we stop people in their tracks, give a thought on the underlying issues that made people utter such words. Listen to their behaviours. Listen to their facial expressions and body gestures. Listen to the things they conceal or have difficulties in voicing out. Listen not solely by using your ears, but include your mind and your heart to it. Strive to listen to the words which are not being uttered. Strive to empathize. Only then, speak.

Going home soon. :)

♥●• Izdiher·•●♥ :: Hey! Thanks for popping over again! :)

Yoli :: Going home in 30mins to be exact. :)

Adib :: Those are my thoughts which I recently shared with some friends. I try to see things from various perspectives, and collectively derive a sound conclusion from it. Alhamdulillah, Allah has made it easy for me to articulate it. :)

Yes. I still remember you. I've been occupied with one too many things, thus I haven't been able to do any blog-walking. Will insha'Allah drop by soon. Jazak'Allah khair and a belated Eid mubarak to you and your loved ones too.

Interesting! After reading it, I like to call this conclusion an art of communication.
