How many times have you sent a message and it was read the wrong way?
How many times have you tried to communicate one thing only to have the person listening vehemently deny that message is indeed coming across? Perhaps you’re shocked, angry or just plain frustrated.
You could blame them. After all, you know what you are trying to say, don’t you?
Or you could make your point. On deaf ears.
You could try to repeat your message in a different way.
You could come back again, at another time.
You could get someone else involved, to mediate, to step in, to oversee.
You could shout louder.
You could resign yourself to the fact that the two roads shall not meet.
You could pause and take stock.You could see things the way they see it.
You could simply let go.
