Wendy Brown, a surgeon at the Alfred Hospital talks poignantly about a patient she was involved with where she couldn’t save their life and she got emotional over it. A great perspective on how you can be human, get distressed at times, but still do your job. Incredible stuff.
I’ll need to digest this a bit more, but I’m curious if this is about someone else talking too much or us, the listener, thinking and processing too slow – it mightn’t be either and may be just about reducing the talking.
This is a solid thread (on Twitter) about how to talk to people that’s effective, warm, friendly, and just plain human – we all want to be treated like this, right?
Is there a nice way to tell someone that they are talking entirely too much? Like a person you have to interact with and generally like but they just say so many words all the time?— Tressie McMillan Cottom (@tressiemcphd) April 23, 2022
