Dialogue is an exchange between two people.
There is equal amounts of giving and receiving. Of speaking and listening.
There are elements of respect, of presence and of intent.
It requires us to be receptive to what the other is offering.
It consists of language. Not just the spoken word, but body language. Often, the way that we present ourselves before we have even said a word, says a lot of our intent.
Ultimately, it is connection.
The thing that we all seek. To build an interpersonal relationship or connection, we need dialogue.
We need to communicate effectively.
