It’s good to talk, but…

How many time have you heard someone say, “It’s good to talk”?

I’m sure we’ve all heard that statement said a number of times, and to be honest it is true, because in many situations it is good to talk. But for someone to be talking there also has to be a listener, because if someone is talking but no-on his listening, “It’s good to talk”, isn’t really a valid comment, is it?

It is good to talk, but in order to learn both about ourselves and about the person we’re talking to, we must actively listen, and in listening we learn.
