Do you find yourself having a lot of conversations in your head that never see the light of day? As Susan Scott wrote in her book, Fierce Conversations, all conversations are with ourselves and sometimes they involve other people. A conversation with yourself can be a helpful form of processing but if you really want to get your needs meet, if you really want to be understood, you have to be in conversation with someone else. The gap often arises when we translate our thoughts into an actual conversation with another. The “other” adds a whole new dimension to the conversation.
