Communication

Earlier today I started sharing with my boy something that was troubling me. He launched into asking me questions. "Did you try this? How about that?" Then he began reassuring me that it was nothing that should be troubling me.

I started getting frustrated.

Then I paused in my rising frustration and thought rationally. I said, "This is one of those situations where I don't want any advice, I just want you to listen." He gave me an immediate hug and started listening attentively and sympathetically.

It's amazing how easy that was! I have to remember how effective this "communication" thing can be, when used properly.
