-LISTENING TO OTHERS CRITICALLY
-INTERRUPTING OTHERS WORDS AND THOUGHTS
One of the skills I believe I
need to work on is my ability to listen to others critically. It has come to my
attention that I am a bit of a chatterbox when around my friends, and I rarely
will give others the opportunity to talk out their thoughts and effectively
communicate them to me. Another thing that I do often is that I tend to finish
others’ thoughts and sentences with what I believe that they are trying to say,
appearing to be rude to those that are not close to me and know me well
personally. I feel that some of this has affected my personal relationships
with my friends and family; for example, my mother. I never noticed how much it
irked her that I would try to rush things ahead and facilitate communication
until she finally became exasperated with me and imparted that it would be best
if I tried to slow down and let others finish their thoughts. It’s important to
listen to others’ problems and concerns, and while expressing and interjecting
my own thoughts occasionally may be fine, but too much can lead to a breakdown
and corruption of the initial idea that someone may have been trying to convey
Another skill I
believe would be beneficial for my growth as a communicator would be increasing
my ability to be vulnerable. Growing up, I never really chose the ‘untrodden
path’, as they say. I generally always took safe, comfortable options, and
never actively tried to venture out of my comfort zone. Perhaps part of it has
to do with having ASD, but I genuinely feel overwhelmingly anxious in situations
that I’ve never encountered before in my life, and often even rehearse
scenarios in my head at times for instances that may occur in the future. An
example would be the start of COVID-19, and the implications that followed. The
multitude of changes that occurred due to COVID-19, including loss of friends
and family, online classes, and the loss of my job had absolutely destroyed my
ability to really cope with my own reality, and thus spiraled out of control.
Luckily, I did have some family and friends to help me through these tough
times, but who can guarantee that they would be able to help me again, if
something like this occurred? As a result of this line of thought, I decided to
try more new things, and try to edge around my comfort zone more. I would like
to be exposed to more situations that I have never dealt with, as I inevitably
will in the future, and will try with everything I have to make sure I can
thrive, rather than struggle in the future.
