Poor listeners – Toxic talkers

What? That is always my response when someone says I was not listening. However, being a poor listener is not only missing what someone was saying, but sometimes we don’t even let the other person talk. We feel that we have the right to talk and that no other opinion is necessary

A steady soliloquy is not a conversation.
