We stop trying to understand

Another thing that comes up when you live with someone and spend lots of time with them is that you get tired of really listening and relating. Hey, let’s be honest, listening – I mean real listening – is hard work. It’s part of the hard work that pays off in a meaningful connection. But it is hard work. And sometimes, we get tired.

Nice” or “Uh-huh.” We get the credit of technically listening, but we aren’t participating in the conversation.
