If you’ve ever played the Telephone game, (also called Gossip) you know how humorously and unpredictably messages can morph as they pass from one person to the next. But in the game of life, it isn’t so entertaining when what you intended to communicate wasn’t heard the way you wanted. This game is a good reminder of just how precarious human communication is. Keep this in mind the next time you feel offended by your interpretation of something someone said or did. It’s possible that the way you heard it…
Wasn’t what they meant.
