I’ve met a few people who argue that words I chose were the wrong words for what I wanted to convey. They would tear at the fabric and threads of an idea or a feeling, as if they wanted to win something. If my message got through, then my words must have done the job that I had set out for them to do. How do they manage the contradiction?
If I listen with a heart open and willing, I can hear in white space between the words everything another person isn’t saying.
