This was one of the best messages to stop and be a good listener-- not just to respond, but really hear. And hope the other who's listening to us, hears also.
Thank you.

Right, but it’s a tough one. I sometimes  say innocent comments, and, boy, have I gotten an earful...
Not arguing with someone, but making small talk.

When two people are arguing, it takes a lot of inner strength to be the first to stop, and to listen to the other person.

Thank you. I just realized that if we are planning our response as we are listening, we miss a lot of what is actually being expressed.

Rabbi Shlomo Alkabitz (the author of 'Lecho Dodi') had a rule for his talmidim that talmidim should rebuke one another as needed, and when someone rebukes someone, the rebuked may not respond until 3 days. This is so that he should allow the heat of the moment to pass and that he should not be dishonest and untruthful when responding. After 3 days if he feels that he has something to respond, he may then do so.

Rabbi - That part about listening to understand vs listening to respond seems like a key to me. Often my tendency is to prepare a quick response and while doing so cannot hear anything the other person is saying. It requires intense listening (shema as you say) not to slip into that trap. Thank U for getting the message thru so clearly.

Such valuable and important advice. Sometimes, I find myself thinking about how I am going to respond just so I have something to say, so I don't appear to be a fool. That is a problem of self-esteem, on top of the issue preparing your response in order to prove you are right instead of really listening.
