Listen

The downside of being a good listener is its really hard to find someone that wants to listen. I have a few close friends and I’m mostly the one that listens to their problems, stories, joys or just whatever and I’m good at that. I don’t have a problem with listening and I do it genuinely. But sometimes I hate it when I have a story to share and I don’t get the same undivided attention that I give out. Is it that hard? All I’m asking for is someone to listen, truly listen and even ask questions about what I’m saying. Don’t just impatiently wait your turn to chime in with what you’ve been wanting to say, because apparently its far more important. Or even worse is the, I’m listening to you but doing something else at the same time and only really hearing every 5th or 7th word. That is just pathetic. I must be asking for too much here.

Effective listening is more than simply avoiding the bad habit of interrupting others while they are speaking or finishing their sentences. It’s being content to listen to the entire thought of someone rather than waiting impatiently for your chance to respond.

Tré Sweeney…..

Welcome to the written documentation of a crazy man. He seems normal to most....but he is slowly un-winding at the seems and will one day explode.

Don't feed the crazies!
