Listen when someone is speaking

Why is it people don’t let you finish what you are saying?

If you are talking then obviously you have something to say and even if it isn’t important or has nothing to do with the other person- hear them out. You have NO IDEA what it means to them, or how it effects their life, or what is going on with them. Don’t interrupt, talk to someone else, play with your phone:

Listen.
Empathize.
Be compassionate.
Respect others.

You might miss something important in their lives if you don’t.
