Another reminder to myself

I was speaking to my mom, and she was telling me a story about how she was frustrated with something.

I kind of over-reacted, tried to fix the problem, call her out when I thought she was wrong — etc.

She’s super kind and gracious, so she didn’t say anything about it, but I know that’s now what she was looking for. She was looking for someone to listen to her.

When I next speak to someone, first, I’ll make sure that I can be fully present. Second, I’ll ask myself what the other person’s objectives are, and what I’m trying to accomplish by talking
