    I find myself to be a

    rather boring and sometimes shy person, so I'm always asking others what's on their mind. I don't know why, but I just love listening to people's stories. It's an amazing feeling to have people to talk to and know that people, even those you don't know online, are willing to...

    I've been there for folks

    and given all I could now I'm on low...drained and ALONE. I'll always lend an ear and help folk realize that we're here for each other...lately I've questioned everything not sure about much. Finding my purpose and trying to keep my smile intact.

    Some of the most comforting words in the

    universe are 'me too.' That moment when you find out that your struggle is also someone else's struggle that you're not alone, and that others have been down the same road.

    I am really more of listener

    than a talker so if you feel lonely and need someone to talk to - message me. I will happily listen or even be a sounding board if you need one.

    Being a good listener is not always about

    listening to people's drama! I'm relaxing on my deck, listening to the flurry of insects and countless birds. While I can't understand their sounds, I hear happiness and serenity in the chirps, buzzing and songs. It's like a concert of harmony, and I am relaxed and unbroken...

    Being quiet has its perks.

    Since I'm never talking myself I'm always listening. I listen to all of my friends problems, their stories, their rants. Although, do they listen to mine? They either zone out or just don't care.
