||CleanS1 E11 - Show Me||“Your actions speak so loud, that I cannot hear what you say.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson Your actions speak.

||CleanS1 E10 - Communication (Part II)||“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” ― George Bernard Shaw Many times In relationships we speak in a way that WE understand, but the message isn’t always properly conveyed that way.
