    Being a good listener doesn't mean you have to

    be a good enabler. If you come to me with a problem I will listen very closely, but I will also give you advice that may not be within the realm of things you wanted to hear.

    That's why I want to become a social worker.

    I love listening and helping others with their problems. I've gone thru a lot in my life so I would be able to relate to ppl by experience not just going by the book.

    I've always try to be a good listener to other

    people and what they have to say. I really enjoy listening anyways because you learn so much more when you listen then talk. I've learned that you have to find a balance of talking and listening, but for the most part I enjoy understanding people and making people feel...

    I don't know if any of you have felt this way

    but there are times I've been around people but felt alone. I have trust issues so most of my thoughts and issues have been held inside me. Gossip should never exist. I have found through the short time that I've been on here that I can open up better to those that don't know me...

    Because you never know

    when a person is at their breaking point and wanting to just give up on life. Listening is free of charge and can change a person in a way you would have never thought of.

    I truly am a good listener.

    I don't interrupt people when they divulge their problems, secrets, or heartaches on me. I don't judge. I just sit there, look into their eyes after they talk, and say "feeling Better?" A hug works too. :)

    Sometimes it feels nice to have someone listen

    and pretend they care . Not a therapist , but someone who you can unload on and they won't give you that look . A confidant .

    I would like to have someone

    as my mentor one day. Starting college was rough, getting a decent job was too, and having a really good relationship with her meant the world to me. I look back at those experiences and see all the mistakes I've made while my life was moving faster than I could have handled it...

    When I work behind the bar on a slow night,

    it's the most wonderful thing to be able to listen to my customers intently. After a drink or two, people will talk about anything and everything: work, relationships, politics, music... Then after 3 drinks, the men talk to my breasts and the conversation goes down hill...

    Sometimes I prefer to just listen to people

    than talk to them. I feel like sometimes that's all people need.

    Just remember that youre not the only one

    feeling sad or down. Remember that there is people around you feeling the exact same thing. Remember that You, as a person, are worth so much more than the pain youre feeling. Remember that you are perfect as You are.

    I tend to be a good listener particularly

    when i am calm. its easier for me to listen to people since i quiet and shy. however i really wanna work on being less quiet and shy.

    I'm a fairly caring person.

    I like to lend my ears to those that need to have someone to talk to or are looking for advice. My emotions never get in the way of my answer so some advice might seem a bit ... rude or harsh. I don't mind when people say personal things or ask personal things but some things...

    It doesn't take much to listen to someone,

    just good manners. Oh, yes sometimes you have to absorb a diatribe but some people are incredibly nervous talking and they say all kinds of things in a kind of flood! You learn much.

    I lost a best mate to suicide 7 years ago,

    my father had deep depression which he had to have electo treatment and I also went through a really bad relationship I had for 5 years ended in ways that aren't in movies so with my life experience at the moment I could share things that I should have done or could have done.

    Sometimes we don't realise how powerful

    listening to someone can be.. It could have such a big impact on that person without you knowing it. P.s. I'm always here to listen :)

    I Consider Myself A Good Listener!

    Why ? Since No One Really Listens To Me I realized It Doesn't Feel Good' When Someone Is Talking To You And You're Doing Something Else ' Sometimes It Hurts Them. Always Imagine Yourself In That Position Of Needing Someone To Listen To You But They're not. How Would You Feel...

    for years. I am usually able to figure out the situation and provide good advice. So why is my life such a cluster? Why can't I fix myself?
