I have a lovely Moslim lady friend on Facebook who works as a lecturer in Islamic Studies in Sydney. I thought of her when I considered posting an open question here which may help generate some more community discussion. She posts these regularly in FB and usually elicits many responses.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU HOPE TO ACHIEVE OR DO BETTER IN 2019?
Me: Patiently wait till others stop speaking fully before launching into my response or my affirmation of what that person is saying. It may be a small thing but it embarrasses me and probably annoys other people a lot too. I’m sure that it helps with the flow of conversation and promptes a more relaxed conversation too. I’ve never considered myself a good conversationist. So this small step could be a start.
