I Hate Meaningless Discussions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 197 People

    Really?

    I'm unsure about what is meant by "meaningless" in this context. I suppose everyone will have their own perspective on it though. The conversations I hate are the ones that demean others for simple amusement and do harm. Gossip can get on my nerves and people who don't...
