As always I’m curious.
What does it mean to understand somebody’s silence. I find it hard to comprehend people’s words and their emotions which are out there in the first place, which I find are the most vocal forms of communication. Now if they totally shut up and shut shop, how the hell will I make sense of that?
I grow silent when I am concentrating on something. I’m usually the loquacious kind you see. I expect the same from people, if you want to communicate, ask/tell me. How I do I know what’s running in your mind when you are silent.
Re-writing this poster then, from my pov,
I may understand your words, but never your silences 😛 Can’t help it, however philosophical that statement sounds!
