You’ll put your foot in your mouth less

Sometimes you say something you regret when you interrupt. You hear just the first part of what someone has to say, you feel insulted, cut them off, and say something insulting back. Only then do they say “Had you let me finish, I was going to say—-“ and it turns out, they weren’t trying to insult you. But now you’ve said what you said and there’s no taking that back. Or sometimes you share a secret you weren’t supposed to, feeling that you have to, because you haven’t let the person finish. Listening can reveal you didn’t have to say as much.
