In this world that is increasingly full of distractions from messages to social media, it becomes harder and harder to listen and give people our fullest attention.
I too am guilty of using my phone as others are talking, preferring to reply unimportant texts than conversing with others who are centimetres away from myself.
It becomes a habit that I begin to realise and be completely aware of.
Thus, I am trying my best to give someone my full attention by putting my phone away when it is time to converse.
I guess it is a basic form of respect and also, one can truly learn a lot about the other person if one is willing to give their fullest attention.
For me, it is a habit in progress.
