Think Out Loud

That’s who you really like. The people you can think out loud in front of.” ~ John Green

I know, that's stating the obvious. But sometimes, it's so easy to miss the obvious. Or appreciate it and see it as a gift. 

So it's good to remind ourselves that when you are conversing (truly sharing with no inhibitions, where even your fear of being misunderstood goes by the wayside) and in turn listening (really listening with intention and attention) to someone, these are the people who matter to you. The people you genuinely like. The hearts you'd choose to be vulnerable with.

When you're not self-editing, that's when you're truly invested in the interaction and the person you're interacting with.
