It is funny that speech is
inherent in being human, but
communication is hard. What is it
about opening my mouth and
informing another of my thoughts
that is hard?
It is not as if I am on an
alien planet, with you trying to
help to me survive. It is not as
if I am trying to confess some
great crime, or any other secret.
Some much of talking feels out of my hands.
A misspoken inflection can give
my words an unintentionally questioning or angry
tone. Too fast you will not know
what I said; too slow you will
think I am stupid or unwilling.
Things can even be said at the
wrong time and place!
Said without out a smile, I am anti-social.
no pleasantries, I am rude or unfriendly.
no eye contact, I must be abused.
I don’t want to get it wrong.
I don’t know what to do.
