I find it difficult to express an idea effectively. When I put my thoughts into sentences, it becomes very complex and people get bored.
For example, recently, when my colleagues and I having coffee, the topic of bringing up children came up.
I knew one of the colleague's parents brought her up being brave, by making her do those things she was reluctant to do. In India, (sorry, but it's a fact) girls are not brought up to be brave, like that. It's unusual to do what her parent did. But I was appreciative about how her parents bring her up and when I mentioned it, everybody, including the girl herself, thought that I was teasing her.
I had to stop everyone (kind of) to make the air clear, that I actually complemented her parents.
Later, she was able to explain things very clearly, unlike me :(.
So, how to clearly express an idea in a group without confusing listeners??
