Welcome to day seventeen of the Createyou86 May A-Z Blog Series.
When you first meet someone what do you say to them? I ask them "How are you?" I don't think that we as an American culture put enough emphasis on caring how each other are getting by in the day to day of everything that is happening in our lives. Is it really so hard to ask someone how they are, and listen to them for more than 30 seconds if they start to explain? I can't tell you how many times someone has asked how I was, waited for a super short generic answer, and just moved on expecting it to end there. Not only is it rude, but it is disrespectful as well. I can honestly say that I care what someone's day has been like!
When you ask someone how their day has been, it might be the best five minutes of their day when you actually listen! Just slow down, and if you don't expect an answer longer than ten seconds or so, you shouldn't have asked it in the first place.
