This episode will encourage all of us to look inward and ask: Am I a civil communicator? As a society, there are times we are addicted to self-expression when restraint may be the best form of expression there is.

If we are to heal divides and fix broken relationships, we need to develop a level of understanding and empathy. Additionally, we begin to free ourselves from the burden of always needing to express an opinion or thought and listen better.
