I heard something, a while ago, that kind of stuck with me.
It’s hard to remember who said it or if it was just something I saw on social media.
“People don’t care what you have to say, they’re just waiting for their turn to talk.”
It’s hilarious how true this can be.
Sometimes I’ll be talking to somebody close to me and I can’t wait for them to shut the fuck up so I can say what I have to say. To talk about myself or something.
Other times… I’m really listening, empathizing, sympathizing, and I become conscious of the other times I’m not.
It’s a sorry feeling, but we’re all human, I guess.
Of course, it depends on the topics brought up, but I tend to forget that certain conversations might be way more important to one than the other.
For all I know, you’ve already left this post to go watch YouTube.
Whatever, it’s all good in the neighborhood.
If you’re still here, the point I’m trying to make is… to listen a little more. It’ll do us all some good.
