“If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”
- Winnie the Pooh
Ah the wise words of Winnie the Pooh. This quote reminded me of the profound patience and faith we use when we commit to using experience sharing/declarative communication. At the beginning oh how it can feel like you are talking to walls! As if there is fluff in your partners ears.
And then slowly and sometimes without warning those seeds that you've have planted with commenting and silence begin to bud.
It never ceases to amaze me. Declarative communication is powerful.
