I have a couple of friends that speak slowly and pause often. I have to bite my lip not to offer a word or two.
But really, I learn more about them by waiting for them to choose their own words.
Same with the hubby man. It’s easy to think that I know him and can “help” him along with his speaking, but I learn far more about him by waiting. And I think it shows a bit more respect too when I don’t interrupt with my take on what he is trying to communicate.
