    Sometimes people just need someone to listen.

    I am here for you. I will not judge you. I may give advice, but only if you want it. I am a safe person to share with.

    I'm much more of a listener

    than a talker. I used to be very shy. I was pretty much afraid to talk to people I didn't know because I never knew what to say to people. I was very awkward in conversation. Instead of talking I spent a lot of time listening and trying to understand why others said the...

    I love to listen to others

    and help their problems, or at least give some advice. I'll be here if anyone wants to vent. I'll do my best to make some time and try not to be awkward for anyone! psst, don't let my age bother you.

    Everyone deserves to have someone listen to

    them. I didn't always think like that though, I used to be one of those annoying people who would try to give you unsolicited advice - you know, a bad listener. But I've learned how to listen, just let them talk but let them know you're understanding what they say, don't try to...

    Sometimes I prefer to just listen to people

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

    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.

    To listen we must rid the mind of noise.

    Hear with real sensibility, sensibility found in being present, where ego is put aside. Noticing what goes unsaid and feeling what is felt. Each moment there is a rhythm, it’s felt in the bones. And a flow to life that moves like our bloodstream. This is the music of...

    I don't really talk much.

    .. some people at school have actually thought I was mute until we get thrown into a group project by our teachers. But I love to hear other people's problems and try to help sort things out- I'm better at handling their issues than my own. It's kind of strange having people from...

    I can listen really well to people's stories

    and problems, but the difficult part for me is when it comes to giving advice. Sometimes its hard to know what to do in touchy situations and I'm probably not the best at giving advice because I always need more time to really mull it over and think of good solutions. But...

    I believe that I'm an excellent listener.

    I'm approached on many occasions by friends and family who seek me out to listen to their tales. I'm perfectly fine with it. Even if all I do is listen and nod I know I'm doing enough just by taking my time away to listen to them. On some occasions I get a tad annoyed when...

    People need or like to talk.

    I talk too little but I can listen for hours if you really need to talk or just pretend to listen if you simply like to talk.

    I like listening to peoples problems

    and try to find solutions to help them out. My dream job is to become a psychiatrist. Throughout middle school and a little of high school I've saved so many of my friends lives and it makes me feel good knowing that I can use words to help people feel better.
