If it gets emotional, shut up

When I get annoyed, aggravated, or angry… my listening skills shut down. I focus my energy on defending my ground. I’m pretty sure the same is happening on the other side.

By stopping the argument, standing silent and opening my ears to hear, I change the tone of the conversation, and we have a chance at a healthy dialogue.
