While I was chilling on a couch and waiting for my one o’ clock class today, a friend walked by. We nodded to each other and I asked, “How is it going Mark?” and instead of truly listening to what he said, as soon as he nodded, I interupted “Good!”
However, he replied “Not real good.” just as I said that. Why is it that we are used these “typical greetings” to one another instead of truly wondering how they are dong? It was just a reminder to me that I need to really care how others are feeling and also actually listen to them instead of lowering myself to cliché communication.
