I Am a Good Listener

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 60,559 People

    I've struggled though depression

    and anxiety and I know what it feels like to be left out of the group. Over the years of seeing countless case managers and knowing what I want out of a therapist, I have become a great listener and great at giving advice. I know that for the rest of my life, all I want to do...

    I find myself always wanting to listen instead

    of talking. I learned I can find out so much more when I just sit back n listen.

    I hate this part of me.

    . Everyone only wants to talk, no one ever wants to listen to me.. I am a very good listener but I hate that about me.. I wish someone would listen to me too!

    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...

    Actually, it's a bit different with different

    people. I have many acquaintances and I suppose 'buddies' of the cohort, and I listen to them completely and sincerely when they decide to tell me something on their mind, something going on with their private lives... and all that. However, the responses I give them start off...

    I listen to everything a person's got to say,

    whether it means anything or not I'll listen and appreciate that person for confiding in me, or hell, just talking to me and being my friend for that matter.

    Knowing when to listen

    and how to listen is an art. Many people think they are good listeners because when their friends or partners are chatting about their normal adventures in life they provide the standard head nod or supportive comments. But often people are in pain and having troubles. Sometimes...

    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 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. :)

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Another argument we couldn't get out of.

    It was over books. I asked him about some books he never finished. I listened to the tone of his voice become sterner, his eyes become defensive, my voice decreased to a faintness. I just wanted to get out of there.

    Life is tough. We all make mistakes,

    and we all learn one way or another. But that doesnt mean you have to go through life alone. If you feel a need to just talk, vent or anything, feel free to message me. Ill be more than happy to listen!

    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.
