Sometimes a conversation may seem like two parallel lines that do not meet.
I get frustrated when I am not understood and it seems that communication is not taking place.
But if I bother to listen closely I realize that the other person draws from his/her background, experiences and belief systems which are different from mine and make his/her response seemingly superficial or out of context or just plain irrelevant.
Wisdom replaces disappointment when I go past words and look to the heart and there I see what is at the bottom line.
