Overheard a toxic conversation or gossip? What can we learn from them?
It was just a conversation or so you thought, but afterwards you felt a little flat. Perhaps on reflection you realised that it simply wasn’t nice, a little more than idle gossip.
Either way, you weren’t impressed and it actually was a toxic conversation. Oh dear. All too common, but the great thing is you realise it and now, you’re more aware.
So, what can we do about toxic conversations?
Being aware of our conversations – the tone, the energy, the structure and of course, the intent, truly does matter.
To understand this a little more and not jump so quickly to “searching the past for my own misdemeanors, so I can beat myself up”, let’s take ourselves out of the equation for a moment and consider conversations we’ve overheard, on say a bus, and ask ourselves:
As humans, we are not perfect and certainly it would be easy to judge and quite frankly, sometimes it does make for a good story, but the big question is: what can we learn from observing others and how can we apply it?
Here are a few questions that easily come to mind:
Now remember, the intent of this blog is to remind you be aware of your conversations – the tone, the structure, the energy, the intent. Listen to what is said, and what is not said, so that we may become more aware of ourselves.
Just listen, learn and let it go.
I know that putting the above into practice, made me a better person. Until next time.
