How to stand the quietness

Do you remember my post about listening? If not, read it here.

What I learned by starting to practice listening or better trying to, is that first it is super difficult to learn this new habit and secondly that quietness can be really disturbing and makes me feel uncomfortable. Realizing that, I went through my usual reactions and realized how many are a result of not being able to stand an uncomfortable situation and feeling the urge to escape that feeling by reacting.
