We know in this fast paced modern world, communication becomes a part of our life, no matter anywhere, anytime, or anybody. But most of us tend to make such mistake that we only concern about own feelings and requirements, wishing we are the spotlight and everyone just listen to you.

In fact you have not learned how to listen, to appreciate other’s feeling and respect others and you will not deserve the respect from others. Once you learned how to listen, you will reach a new height of your life.

The person who familiar with you would point out your bad habits and hope you could avoid them, generally, you will laugh away and saying it’s not a big a big deal.
