Happy Thoughts: December 10, 2020 at 10:00AM

We’ve all experienced telling someone a story, only for them to respond by telling a grander one. We assume they are trying to one-up us or belittle our experience, but they could just be trying to show how much they relate.

It may come across as rude which is why good communication skills are so important.

A few things we can do to avoid doing this ourselves is asking questions about their story before getting into our own narrative. We can also link our story back to aspects of theirs.

Don’t let this overwhelm you and interrupt the natural flow of your conversation, but be mindful of it so others know you are listening. Effectively listening to someone’s story shows how much you care.
