    She said I was a distraction,

    a necessary distraction. A very bad childhood created this part of her...she didn't deserve what she went through. But the pigs created the fallout, damn them. Soulless aberrations. She held onto me so tight, I could barely breath. But I had to be there for her, to comfort her...

    I give time to endeavour.

    Time is the requisite of all human activities. It's all we've got! Listening is time, because it saves time especially in terms of education, learn the first time or play catchup!

    Does anyone ever feel like they're the one all

    their friends come to when they have issues but find it hard to share your problems with them?

    After having lost my health,

    mobility, career and many other things, I look back and realize that my only contribution to this world has been that I have listened to many many people and offered them help, kindness, silence, support, advice and strength. But I don't know what is it to have a friend like...

    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!

    There is an art to listening to someone else.

    It takes honesty. But first you must be able to listen to yourself. That demands a lot of honesty.

    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...

    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. :)

    I am not as good as I would like to be,

    but I am getting better. When I catch myself, interrupting someone, I apologize and ask them to continue. I already know what I think, if I want to expand my knowledge, I need to listen to other people's point of view. I ask questions on things they have told me. I enjoy when...

    Everyone comes to me with their problems

    which is great because I love to listen and give good advice but I feel as though no one listens to my point of view on things or they just don't know what to say. It's really frustrating.

    You know what annoys me the most?

    Some people's presumptuous attitude when they tell you they know what you are going through. Truth is, nobody knows what you are going through or how you feel. All our battles are our very own. A friendly voice not judging us is all that matters.

    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.

    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 am a very good listener,

    I am actually a number one person that people come to when they need to vent. I listen and if they need advice, I am willing to do that. I have help a lot of people and have even stopped suicides and self-harming incidents. But there's a downside to being a good listener, you...
