Being a woman with a hearing disability, I look for ways to communicate better. I learned about six years ago how to quiet my mind when engaging in conversation.
It’s amazing how much clearer the communication is for both parties!
The discussion becomes clearer because my mind is not agreeing or disagreeing or wanting to be elsewhere. The noise in my head no longer interferes with my physical ability to ‘hear’. I respond with my thoughts when it’s my turn to speak.
