Rules of Engagement for Sharing Circle..

1) I'm there to focus on the person sharing.

2) I very seldomly respond to people speaking to me when someone is sharing.

3) If I'm not responding to your hello or comment, wait till after sharing circle and try again.

Nothing personal, I'm there for the person sharing, they have all my attention and support.
