    Smile Showing understanding with 'I' and 'you'.

    The purpose of this thread is to show understanding. So we have two rules, 'I' and 'you'.

    'I' makes a statement starting with 'I' that is important to them, and then 'you' repeats or paraphrases that statement, but starting with 'you'. An example is -

    I: I am a little nervous starting this thread because I don't know how it will be received.

    You: You are a little nervous starting this thread because you don't know how it will be received.

    So if you wish to show understanding, you are very welcome to post on this thread under 'I' or 'you', as in -

    I: ..................................

    You: ..............................

    Vic, in your response, please talk in straightforward candid language, the style most of the individuals here use. Just once. Don't make a new paragraph for each sentence.

    This thread will work if one person makes an 'I' statement and another different person replies with a 'you' statement. So I will begin with an 'I' statement and wait for another member to reply with a 'you' statement.

    I: I hope this thread will work.

    You: ...................................

    I am frustrated because my legs are restless and are keeping me awake. :steam:
