It is hard to switch to this mode for me. I am so used to living as an observer and consumer.
And it is hard to believe you can change if you have done this for so long.
I am used to avoiding conversations as much as I can.
Though I usually enjoy them once I get started.
And we can do a lot of the basic things in life without having to speak a single word. Shopping for example just got so extremely convenient.
The hard truth is that we don’t learn a language by osmosis. And we don’t build relationships by osmosis. We need to take intentional action.
