Let me put you in a scenario. Imagine you are in a room full of people who are conversing with each other (smiling, laughing and you can see all the different facial expressions going on) you don’t want to miss a word that they are saying, you start lip reading but its exhausting (its all happening too fast)..you are eager to participate in the conversation wanting to be part of it but then they are talking in a foreign language …$%^&*#…
Imagine having to put up with this every single day of your life ….

As a consequence, a lot of people will become passive in life. They start getting anxious. They will start to withdraw. They will isolate themselves. They stop participating in conversations and this list will go on. The longer it is left untreated, the more severe it will become.
“The art of conversation is the art of hearing as well as of being heard.” ― William Hazlitt
