How and Why to Report a Post
Have you ever....

I'm going to do some thinking out loud... I just wonder if any of my sisters here have thought about these things...

Have you ever wondered, how you were observed to be, by others?
Example: I thought my body langauge was saying to others: Go away, leave me alone, not interested, etc. My T however, said she preceived my body language to be one of vulnerability thus drawing to me those I thought I was blocking.

Have you ever wondered how your words were heard by others?
Example: Most of us are familiar with the poem: "There is a hole in the sidewalk." Well, in group this week, I learned that I take the words to be litteral. Others in the group heard these words as Metaphores. Wow, what a difference in hearing!

Have you ever wondered if your manner of communication was actually being conveyed in the manner you have thought?
Example: I recently learned that my manner of communication might come across as an attack of sorts when what I may be trying to convey is actually the opposite.

And if you have ever.... how did it affect your perceptions of others and yourself? For myself, it has caused me to ask questions to see if I am hearing correctly, speaking and/or communicating clearly, and conveying what it is that I seek to convey.
